For the first time, the garage was moved to the front of the home. This was the first generation of home owners to have a highly prized freedom and mobility to work and shop in the city and then retreat to the suburbs to live. Because the suburbs removed the need to build houses close together, lots became increasingly larger and the square footage of the average house floor plan expanded accordingly. Ranch house floor plans generally accentuated the width of the lot.

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. 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.

Divide the floor into four sections. You can use grout as a line separator. Then, for each section, use a notched trowel to spread the mortar. Hold the trowel at a 45 degree angle so that it creates notches in the spread. This enables better holding when you set in the tile. Do not spread too much mortar at once. If the mortar dries before you can set the tile, you’ll have the additional problem of removing it. When you set the tile, only a light pressure is required. Depending on the thickness of your tile, you’ll have to press it into the mortar a short distance. Make sure that each tile is even with the next. Mortar will come up over the sides of the tile, but this can easily be wiped away. Avoid resting hands or arms on the tile you’ve set. It’s going to take a couple of hours before the mortar is completely dry. Grout the ceramic tile flooring, and wipe off any grout that gets on the tile.

There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.

Country homes are planned in such a way as to feel comfortable. The floor plan of a country home delivers a rustic and relaxing atmosphere - it doesn’t matter where it is built. They are characterized by roomy porches and large kitchens which are situated right next to the family room. Some country houses have steep roofs and irregular layouts. Still others have a front face that is not symmetrical, a pitched roof and a spacious front porch. The ranch floor plan is conventional and matter-of-fact. The roofs are low pitched with a large garage attached to the house. Ranch homes are single-storied. Split-level floor plans are not unusual. The façade is brick or wooden, with large windows. Ranch homes typically have an L-shaped hall which combines the living room and dining room into one area, with a hallway leading to the family room and a group of bedrooms all on one side of the house. A patio at the back with a glass sliding door leading to it is not unusual for a ranch house.

A floor plan is about space deployment, or more specifically, the space you want (or need) for family members, guests, pets, entertaining and basic household operations (i.e. cooking, dining, laundry, storage, etc.). Furthermore, it is easy to overlook space requirements for many things we take for granted such as hobbies, displaying collections and other family activities. Try to anticipate as many of your family’s needs as possible and expand your floor plan to accommodate your desires.

It can take a lot of time, money and effort if one chooses the former. Moreover, a pre-drawn floor plan, apart from saving money and time, also lends itself to modifications as per one’s needs.One can safely assume that many pre-drawn house floor plans have already been tried and tested. That means construction hassles would have already been sorted out, which implies that any additional labor costs and uncertainties during the construction phase will not exist.

These tools should include basic carpentry tools like an accurate measuring tape, a carpenter’s square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces, a tile cutter, a trowel, and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material, thin set mortar or tile adhesive, the sealant, the grout and a rubber grout float. Also you must make sure that you are wearing work clothes or overalls, glasses and heavy-duty gloves for safety.
