Modern House Plan concept : www.apnaghar.co.in
The dictionary definition of modern house plan is: “Just now. Relating to, or characteristic of the present.” Apnaghar’s definition: A modern  House Plan  for today’s House owner providing the latest in cost effective, energy efficient, comfortable, healthy, green, sustainable technology.
Besides energy efficiency, there are other key elements unique to all of our House designs. Affordable means just that. Starting the first year, properly chosen features should return more in energy savings than they will cost you annually. Style is enhanced through the utilization of open house designs, solariums, earth berming, and low maintenance exteriors. Protecting against rising energy prices adds to your security and your House’s future value.
Our ongoing commitment is to research and evaluating new products and construction techniques, incorporating those we find to be of true value into each new House design.
The days of bragging about how big of a House you own we think is over. Incorporating efficient use of space within a House Plan comes with years of experience. The less square footage needed, the less construction cost and less heat loss.
Apnaghar strives to make the best use of space in their designs by:
·         Creating an open floor plan design (eliminating as many walls as possible).
·         Developing traffic patterns to reduce the need for hall area.
·         Obtain multiple uses of space where appropriate (more than one function per area).
·         Use radius walls to improve traffic flow and create a larger appearance.
·         Use the interior volume by not wasting available space.
·         Sculpture the interior by building in furniture, lighting, etc.
·         Choose a well insulated exterior wall system that does not eat up interior space due to its excessive thickness.
House Plan is also a major concern for a good, energy efficient, modern House design. Our goal is to design an attractive House Plan with the least amount of exterior surface area without sacrificing good aesthetic appeal.
The shape of a House Plan can play a considerable role in how energy efficient it is. A more compact, open-design concept can maximize interior space use, while reducing exterior wall surface area.
When we reduce the surface area, we reduce heat transfer. Shapes that achieve good ratios of surface area to volume are more energy efficient.
Most Apnaghar House Plan are developed to maximize the positive effects of solar radiation upon the building. Room locations are chosen to attempt matching the occupancy time with the sun’s location (i.e. breakfast nook to the east for morning sun).
The actual location of your House on your building site should be made with respect to the openness and availability of sunshine, as this is one of the most important decisions you will make about your House.
In areas where heating is a primary concern, the use of the low winter sun’s energy is very effective. Remember that the natural vegetation and landscape are important to the site. At their best, trees can be very effective windbreaks during the winter, as well as providing shade in the summer.
Earth sheltering is a significant benefit if your lot is conducive. Apnaghar–the sun and earth combined for comfort! This is the blending of the Apnaghar House with its site to help achieve a low profile, in addition to providing energy savings.
Smart planning and design leads to improved comfort, better liveability, and money and energy savings. A House Plan that will serve your enjoyment for years to come.

What is Front Elevation : APNAGHAR

June 23, 2011


Front Elevation plays an important role in building a house. A Front elevation of home should make an appealing visual statement and accurately convey the style of the home. To achieve this, careful attention is paid to every detail of the design; Which is taken care while designing the Home Plan. Apnaghar as a professional company do pays equal importance to front elevation.
House elevations are architectural drawings that show how a home will look from specific angles. Elevations are a key part of the way Apnaghar communicate their designs with clients and the contractors who will build the home. Like all architectural drawings, house elevations are drawn to scale, meaning that the length and thickness of each line directly corresponds with measurements of the finished home.

Parts of House Elevation :

A front elevation is a part of a scenic design. It is a drawing of the scenic element (or the entire set) as seen from the front and has all the measurements written on it. The front elevation of a home plan is a straight-on view of the house as if you were looking at it from a perfectly centred spot on the same plane as the house. Also called an “entry elevation,” the front elevation of a home plan shows features such as entry doors, windows, the front porch and any items that protrude from the home, such as side porches or chimneys. However, side walls are not visible at all unless they will be built at an angle that is visible from the centred front view.

Side elevations of a home plan are similar to the front elevations, but are drawn from each side of the home, again in a straight-on view. Architects label these elevations by right and left side, determined as if you were facing the home. Directional notations, such as “Right side elevation (north)” help minimize confusion when interpreting the drawings. Side elevations of a home plan are useful for showing windows and other home features, and they also show the home’s depth. The side view of the front and back porches helps contractors visualize porch size in relation to the home. Roof pitch (steepness) is also indicated in side elevations.

Rear Elevations and Notes
Rear elevations of home plan present the back side of the house, with yet another straight-on view. As with the other drawings, notes regarding features that can’t be seen from straight-on views may be included on this drawing. Other notes included on elevations may indicate the materials contractors should use for certain areas, such as window or door type, siding materials and exterior insulation.

Another type of side elevation is a split elevation. This is a view of the home’s interior, drawn as if the house has been split in half down the middle or other indicated line. Split elevations show details for interior feature heights, floor thickness, wall thickness and stair rise.
A front elevation of home plan is an elevation of a piece of scenery or properties from the front view. It show dimensions and can be drafted or quickly drawn if not to major a piece. A painter’s elevation for the front would show the same object, with dimensions, to scale, (preferably 1/2″) in color so the scenic artists could paint it.
