Research your current market building costs. Contact a local realtor or custom home builder and discuss the average cost per square foot to build a home of the style you like. Now understand that this will only be an average because they can't possibly guess your personal tastes and the finish materials are a large part of any new home cost.
Designing architectural plan can be a tedious job considering one has to examine the basic blue prints and create plans which appeals to the mass audience. Only skilled personnel with complete knowledge of CAD can create 3D architectural plans for a building/home which brings us to a conclusion that outsourcing Engineering services to a firm would be a far sensible idea than to sit for hours trying to figure out ways to get it done by one. Numerous Outsourcing Firms worldwide provide various engineering services at affordable prices and also ensure 100% error free output.
Got land? Before you spend too much time browsing floor plan possibilities, you need to know where that home will be built. Not all floor plan designs are suited for all building sites. For instance, a walk_out basement typically requires a home being built on a slope or recessed into a hillside. Additionally, some plans are designed to take advantage of the home's location relative to sunlight so even if you already own your land, you will want to know where and how your home will be positioned on your property. Once you have an idea of where those logs will be stacked it's time to figure out what that stack needs to look like.
One of the best tips about using a basement for additional living space is to raise the ceiling. Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed_in feeling you get with so many basements.
