A 'CAD set' helps one make extensive changes to the plan with the help of a design expert. It is comparable to the reproducible set, except it is in an electronic format. A 'study set' helps one ascertain if his home can be built within budget. The floor plans in this set include a view of the outside from all four sides, plus the main story and any additional stories. 'Single set' is for finding contractor bids, and this set of house floor plans does not incorporate a building license.
Adding or enlarging dormers is another way of capturing space from a second story or loft that is framed by a sloping roof line. You will be surprised how a well_positioned dormer can make a small loft appear much larger and provide vertical walls to accept seating, bookcases or tables that usually will not work with a conventional knee wall.
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.
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.
