Be aware that room is needed to walk around pieces or to pull out chairs; three feet is optimum but thirty_inches will work. Make sure that there is room for a door to open and that windows are not blocked. Shop online for sofas, tables and bedroom set ideas; find the measurements of the pieces desired and draw them to scale on a separate piece of graph paper. Cut out the scaled furnishings from the paper. Take the furniture cutouts and play with them on the floor plan until the perfect room is achieved. Once the furnishings are best placed trace an outline of the furniture on the scaled copy of the floor plan and remove the paper furnishings. Write the sizes of the pieces of furniture in on the plan in order to know what is required before heading to the store.
We are going to assume here that you have already looked into your financing options and have a good idea of the amount of your budget you can apply towards the actual building cost of your new home. Begin with this amount and deduct 10% right off the top. You will thank me for this advice in the end. Everyone goes over budget during construction, even the financial nerds can't control every little detail that comes along. Take this net building budget and divide this dollar amount by the average square foot cost to build you got from the realtor or builder. Since I hope they gave you a low and high range this will give you two new numbers. These numbers are the low to high total square footage house floor plans sizes you should be searching for. If you choose to look at multi_level house floor plans then you will be comfortable on the upper level of this number since your cost per foot will be lower.
Blue prints of a real estate property can be transformed into 3D or interactive floor plans. Property owners who are willing to design their own engineering plans often look to use architectural design software for 3D or interactive floor plans. 3D architectural plans are illustrations/layout of a property. It is created from the basic blue prints of the building which is further edited to add electrical outlets, plumbing fixtures, windows, doors, furniture etc. This gives a complete overview of the home and the elimination of unused space. 3D home or office plans are a good way of understanding the space around the property and representing the correct measurement of doors and windows for proper ventilation. Precisely speaking, the 3D and interactive floor plans become the final step before the erection of the structure. However, it is difficult to create 3D and interactive plans for reconstruction of a property. Areas of the older plan need to be studied carefully and changed based on the requirements. Plans of existing structure are used and the preferred changes are done with no compromise in the structural reliability of the building. Engineering services also helps in making use of the space to add an extra room to the existing structure.
It is also a good idea to keep a list of things that you don't like; things you may have seen in a magazine or noted when visiting other log homes. Some of the most frequent complaints one hears about log homes, especially older models, is the lack of storage space and small closets or bathrooms. This is most often the result of poor planning or not taking into consideration the diameter of log walls and the lack of attics in most log homes. Refer to your list when discussing details with your designer and remember that in most cases you cannot build a closet or a bathroom that is too large.
