Split level house plans can be a bit jarring to draw, and people who do not know anything about it might even ask about how to draw floor plans for a house. Creating a house plan is no simple matter, yet it is not a very impossible thing to do. In fact, it is easy for you to draw a house plan – even the split ones – if you have mastered the basics of it.
Because talking about the basics of drawing an ordinary house plan is boring, let us kick it up a notch by talking about drawing split-level house plans. Split-level houses are somewhat harder to plan thanks to how complex-looking they are, but if you follow the tips below, you would not find it hard to draw the thing.
Before you can even put the plan on board, you would need to think of the perspective
Split level homes are all about perspective. It talks about perspective so much the types are divided from where you can see the split. If you can see the split from the front, it is called a sidesplit house. If you can only see the split from sides of the house, it is called a backsplit house.
No matter which of the two types you choose, you need to base your plans on that certain type. Each type got its own different plants, after all, so if you suddenly change your mind when you are starting to draw the floor plan, you would need to start over from the beginning.
Split-level houses often got basements
Because it is nigh impossible for you to create a split-level house without a basement. Unlike the other type of houses, split-level houses often got their basements finished because that is where the majority of a family’s member action will take place (some people turn their basements into offices or into family rooms).
In fact, split level houses emphasize on basements so much you can say that it is the main room. The ‘basement’ basement are often below grounds, even lower than the ‘main room’ basement. These ‘basement’ basements are mostly left unfinished, but that is not very relevant to the topic at hand.
The bedrooms are often on the half-second-floor
Split houses do not have a second-floor per se, but they do have a partial second-floor that only takes half or even less of the whole house away. You can somehow say that it makes the house slope, which is basically the essence of split-level houses. Split-level house plans are perfect if you combine it with 1200 sq ft house plans because split level houses try to make space amidst a lack of one.
