Looking at a home in all of its contexts is an important step in choosing a particular design. In fact, it makes the home plans, or the house plans, or whatever your preferred phrase may be, just that much more important. The plans must have the context of the home inherent in the design. So what are the contexts; what do we look for in a home? To be fair, we must note that the answer is different for everyone. It depends on your last home, and what it lacked or didn’t lack. It depends on how much you have to spend… well, usually anyway. Too often we think of house plans in terms of how many square feet, how many bedrooms, how many bathrooms, etc. Instead we need to think about the indoor environment
Looking at the environment, or the ambiance, of your home is an important first step in understanding its ability to satisfy your needs. Will a quick built track home really be the refuge you’ve always wanted? Will it really provide a safe haven for you and your family? Will it feel like an escape or a prison? These are all key notes in a harmony of good design and happy homeownership. Homes of any architectural style can be the house you need to create your own personal piece of heaven. We’d like to show you an outstanding example of this. Enter one of our most serene log house plans, number NDGJB-1041.
The exterior structure shows off what you would expect from the interior. The attached, yet separated garage keeps noise down and minimizes negative indoor air quality effects. A wrap-around porch and gazebo gives a staging point between the indoor and outdoor worlds. Large and many windows extend that bridge into the living areas for plenty of sunlight and possible solar gain. The interior is an open and bright space that’s perfect for Friday evening entertainment and lazy Saturday mornings. The warmth of the logs offers a cozy feel in a large house. The bedrooms each enjoy a bathroom and are kept private from the main house. This beautiful home gives stunning architecture, large interior spaces, the cozy warmth of a log home, and private bedrooms for an escape from the rest of the world.
Make your environment suit your needs. For most of us, that means a peaceful yet lively home designed to give you and your family an exciting get-a-way. Architecture isn’t meant simply to shelter. It’s meant to awake your senses and calm them at the same time, to leave you and your guests in awe every time you step in the front door. All homes can be built with regard to the natural environment, too. Ask your builder about green building techniques and let that enhance your home experience.
