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.
Draw a scaled plan using a pencil and graph paper. Now that the measurements have been taken it is time to get to work to create a scaled plan of the room. Drawing a room to scale on plan is simple once one understands that one quarter inch square on the graph paper equals one foot, and that inches can be estimated with half a square equaling 6_inches and a fourth of a square equating to 3_inches. Using the length and width measurements draw the basic room perimeter to scale onto the graph paper with a pencil. Draw in the doors, windows, etc. to scale on the graph paper in the same way you measured them in the room.
These are just a few ideas that can help you choose and refine a floor plan to fit your lifestyle and accommodate your family's needs. Your log home company or architect will have many ideas that you may not have considered so encourage them to offer suggestions. Explain what you are trying to achieve and let their experience and knowledge guide you, but in the end, this is your floor plan.
Why use 3D rendering? If you are looking to build a home or you have a development project, 3D rendering is such a great tool. It gives you the opportunity to see the project before you even start to build! From the facades, right down to the light fixtures. This allows you to ensure that you get everything you want and need out of your new design. This technology has completely changed the dynamics of architecture and engineering as it gives you the ability to see exactly what the home or development will look like before you even start to build. If you are looking to build in Sydney or anywhere in Australia then 3D rendering will give you the freedom to design it and then build it!
