By Evan Stoddard Floor Plan Drawings By W.C. Ralston Architects LLC

A How-To for Reading Floor Plans

W

ithin a typical set of building documents, the floor plan is the most concise, informative tool for conveying and understanding the design of a home. From this drawing, it’s possible to determine not only the size and scale of the spaces within the home, but also the relationship and ability to move between them. For this reason, the floor plan is the most prolific and conventional drawing used among the various professions within the building industry (architects, engineers, builders, real estate agents, appraisers, etc.). Each of these careers requires training in drawing and/or reading plans, but these are not common skills for most homeowners. There’s a great deal of information conveyed in these drawings and it can be challenging to comprehend what’s being communicated. When designing or purchasing a new home, you’ll most definitely use floor plans to develop or select a design – this can help you gain comfort and confidence in interpreting them.

BF6 

How do floor plans relate to a house? To conceptualize floor plans at a fundamental level, imagine taking a horizontal slice through the house. This type of drawing is a called an orthographic projection, meaning it’s two-dimensional and all elements appear at the same scale. This can be compared to a perspective drawing, which is three-dimensional and conveys things farther away as being smaller than things closer in view. What you see in a floor plan is essentially a flat, bird’s-eye view of the “slice” through the house.

What are the parts of the drawing? The key elements portrayed in floor plans include: walls, doors, windows, stairs, appliances, fixtures, cabinets, and ceilings. In addition to shaping the way you interact with your home, the configuration of these components also suggest its style. Each prominent movement in architecture has a characteristic position of rooms, arrangement of windows, and connectivity between spaces which may help you identify the best fit for your personal preferences. Here’s how these elements are represented in a floor plan drawing:

Walls • Often the most distinguishable part of the drawing – drawn with the darkest/thickest lines. • Represented as two parallel lines, spaced according to their depth/ thickness in reality. • Exterior walls will typically appear bigger than interior walls because they’re built with larger pieces of wood or include masonry, like brick or stone. • Contain breaks for openings like windows and doors. • Sometimes are colored in (or hatched/poche’d) to further distinguish them from the other elements in the drawing or to indicate new vs. existing in renovations and additions.

Windows • Drawn as a break in the wall with at least three parallel lines to illustrate the separate parts of the window: sill, glazing, stool, and jambs. • If the windows are operable, such as casement windows, they will be drawn with a dotted line showing the direction they open.

Doors

Stairs

• Illustrated with at least one line connected to the wall to designate the panel and an arc showing the swing/hinge direction.

• Drawn as a series of parallel lines with an arrow/note indicating path of travel (up or down).

• This will allow you to determine which side of the door the handle/knob is on as well as the path of travel past the opening. • For sliding, pocket, and barn doors – an arrow will typically be drawn adjacent to the door that indicates the direction it can open.

• Lines are spaced according to the depth of each stair tread, which is regulated by code and designed in proportion with the height of each riser. • Typically detailed with both nosing and riser by showing solid (nosing) and dashed (riser) lines. • A diagonal “cut” line is used when stairs stack vertically in plan to show both floors simultaneously.   N e w H o m e s G u i d e   •  b e s t f l o o r p l a n s 2 0 17

4/19/17 3:24 PM


Ceilings • Dotted lines illustrate a change in ceiling profile, shape, or depth above. • This convention of using dotted lines is consistent for most elements “hidden” from view, either above or below the “cut” line of the plan. Upper cabinets are represented in a similar way.

Fixtures and Appliances • There is a common set of easily-identifiable symbols used to represent basic fixtures and equipment. These typically include: bathtubs, toilets, sinks, showerheads, dishwashers, ovens, ranges/ cooktops, and laundry appliances.

The Fair Housing Act means that it is illegal to deny the sale or rental of housing or the opportunity of such because of your race, color, sex, religion, handicap, family status or national origin. The Builders Associations of the Washington area are committed to the law and ideals of fair housing. We want to see everyone in the home of their choice. Please join us in promoting Fair Housing in our community – it’s important for everyone. Because everyone has the right to the home of their choice.
