By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing 'apples to apples' when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14' wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14' of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14' room could shrink to 12' if such presumptions are not understood.
If the floor plans are being made by a specialist such as an architect or engineer, the homeowner has the advantage of experience and expertise on his side. However, no one knows the needs of a home better than the homeowner and a customized design can be put together by the individual concerned.
Viewing sample restaurant floor plans can help you come up with a cost effective floor plan. A successful restaurant starts with the floor plan. When reviewing samples of floor plans, ask yourself why did they design it the way they did. Ask yourself if the way they designed their floor plan will help them maximize sales or minimize and hurt their sales. Then ask yourself is there anything you can borrow from here to help you with your layout of your floor plan. You see, what you are looking for is not just a nice layout and floor design, your sole objective here is to identify strengths and weaknesses of sample restaurant floor plans you are reviewing, in doing this you are looking for ideas and the best possible layout for your restaurant.
What is 3D floor planning? Imagine being able to see your new home or development project without it even being built! That's what 3D floor planning can do for you. It's basically a virtual version of the home or development you plan on building or renovating, but it also gives you so much more. You are given a birds_eye view of the architecture, with ceilings removed so as to show you the layout inside the home or unit or development. 3D Floor planning is used by architects, developers and home owners as it helps to ensure you get the best results for your project. Within this virtual view of the home you can see walls, doorways and the way a property will flow, it is a very beneficial tool.
