How to design a good garage plan? A priori, we can think that it is the easiest part to conceive. But it is far from being the case.
First, we must predict its surface. It is generally thought to provide a surface slightly larger than his car. Serious mistake!
Most often, we live in a couple. It takes 2 car slots. And if possible two driveways because with a single entrance, the second car is often more difficult to park.
Second problem: your child just had his driving license and of course he wants a car and still live at home for a while. If you have not planned, your child’s car will be every night on the street or on the lawn.
Another thing: you have your garage and the car inside, you are quietly installed in front of your television, and your husband or your wife asks you to look for an object present in the car. It’s raining a lot, and you do not have an access door between the house and the garage. Too bad for you, it will be necessary to wait or go out in the rain.
Last thing: For reasons of exposure of your house to the sun, the garage is often located north of the house, where the humidity is the most common. In this case, plan a small window and open it frequently to avoid musty odors. The ideal is to have two windows to create an air circulation.
When one wants to make a plan of house or apartment, one often thinks of the dwelling, but rarely with each piece taken individually.
We offer here a presentation of the bedroom.
First of all, you have to define the surface of this room. Indeed, this surface can be very variable. The smallest are only 100 square meters. But we can have a room of 1000 square meters.
A classic room has a door and a window, a closet and two bedside tables. When the rooms are larger, we can install a bathroom that leads directly to the room. Important, you have to think about the orientation of the sun.
Our ancestors always installed rooms facing east, where the sun rises. Thus, the rising sun allowed to wake up and the room could keep some freshness because it did not receive the important heat of the sun in the South and the West.
Then how to position the bed? Debates still exist on this subject, but a relative consensus says that the head of the bed (where our head is) must be in the North, in order to be in the direction of the magnetic waves.
Finally, once in your bed, you must be able to see the door and the window. It is a very old habit from the time when one lived in caves or wooden huts. Being able to see allows you to sleep more serenely and be ready in case an enemy enters your room.
If you are on this site, archiplain is that you are looking for news about architecture, design, or anything related to real estate. And in some cases, you are looking to make a house plan.
I wondered what is on Google when you type the keywords “Floor plan”. To be more rigorous, I looked for trends on Google Trends. And the result is very interesting. I focused on this expression and only on the American territory, precisely the United States. Here is the result :
CES Floor plan
World of concrete floor plan
Shot show floor plan
Hgtv dream home floor plan
Promat floor plan
Expo west floor plan
Isc west floor plan
Notre Dame floor plan
Surprisingly, we do not find the main software that can make house plans. There are mainly salons and congresses. And after analysis, it’s not so surprising.
Indeed, in most salons, there are many exhibitors and it is very difficult not to get lost. To avoid this, there is a website for each event in which a plan is found. And since there are many visitors, there is a lot of traffic on the site. In general, there is a page of the site called: “name of event” floor plan. That’s the explanation.
People who are looking to make a house plan can find instead many salons and congresses.
Two interesting remarks:
Anyone who needs to make a convention plan or salon plan can do it with archiplain quite easily.
On Google Trends, we find the sentence “Notre Dame Floor Plan”. This is not surprising because many people have launched architectural projects to redo the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral which burned.
When you put the question to people who are on the street: in your opinion, when were the chateaux built? I am sure they will answer from medieval times until the 18th century. If you ask the same question about churches, you will have about the same question. But that’s wrong, because we have continued to build castles and churches until now. It’s true that sometimes the result is surprising and sometimes, let’s say it, really ugly.
We must not generalize.
We present here several castles which are really modern and which still keeps some aesthetics.
First, a real beautiful castle with beautiful stone walls. Even if its general appearance is too new, after a few decades, it will be beautiful:
Then a castle with feet in the water:
Finally, the alliance of the modern and the old:
If you want to make a plan of a castle or a plan of a church or a cathedral (besides, one could launch a contest to make a plan of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris), you can use the archiplain plan editor which you will vary several parameters for your greater satisfaction.
