Complete House Floor Plan

This is my floor plan. After I had some preliminary fun over here with my spot rendering, I did I better layout. This is done in pencil, in case I want to erase something. I can always go back and change things. For the most part, I used my templates. We have covered them already. I have three different kinds, and it's very fun to use them. You work super fast with this so quarter scale. It's beautiful. Just for these reasons, Um, it's important when you do your floor plan with your preliminary furniture layout. The Jew mark three big areas that you need to have in your floor plan. Like, for example, if you have sliding doors or if you have a fireplace. Um, if you have your staircase going to the basement or maybe a second floor, you would have to market you see over here I have down. Then I have up, so I know which one is which. That means thes door that is partially open would lead me to my basement this door if I But if I walk around the studio and I see this line here saying this a...

rrow saying up, I would go to the second floor where I would have the bedrooms. Okay, so let's mark that this is a very fun symbol to have you working diagonal. You do this to mark that the staircases sliced. You don't see beyond that point you. Also, as we compare these two floor plans, you see how the floor plan overhearing would has some suggestion of the wood planks. But if you look closely, you'll notice that I didn't really draw all the planks because first would be very tedious, and it's really not that necessary. You can just draw some of the floor planks enough for the audience, enough for your audience, your client or the people that you would presenting to understand that this is wood and not any other material. But you don't need to spend half hour drawing every single floor plan. Um, it's not really necessary. So what I have over here is just the suggestion of floor plans, floor planks. I have done some here, some here just on spots that I think would give me a sense of continuity. This is important, too, because you see us. I go from kitchen to studio, the direction of the floor. Planks change. They go from horizontal to vertical on my page. And by doing this, I show it very clearly where they switch right here at this stressful. I also add a few dots to suggest texture on the carpet. I need an area rug over here. Another area rug over here. These are tiles, so I have a sense off materials. So it's good to have this all right. And again, everything is done on Tracy on pencil using my 3 60 paper, which is this guy here. Remember, the recent way used this one here is because I can add markers directly on top.
