Final cost estimates of the pre_drawn house floor plans are more likely to be precise because the particulars have been figured out. This means a list of materials has already been made out, for example. The chances of suddenly discovering that the building is beyond the budget after all are fairly small. Sensible buyers would happily save on architect's fees for designing floor plans.
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.
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.
Technical difference _ In 2D floor plans, you, the designer, work on both y axis and x axis. Moreover, the design can be changed in up, down, right and left sides. On the other hand, 2D plans are a lot simpler and cheaper relatively. They can be used to show the right, top and front side of the object. Unlike 2D, designers work on three exis to create 3D floor plans. Actually, this is like molding an object that looks same no matter which angle you look at it from. With 3D technology, solid models and wireframes are created line by line.
