House extension floor plans
Preparation of most house extension floor plans will be completed by your house extension architect or
designer. By engaging a professional and well experienced house extension designer, you will be able to benefit
from their experience and design skills. It is not unusual for the client or homeowner themselves to prepare their
own house extension floor plans in sketch format in order to clearly express their own thoughts to the house
extension designer or architect.
It is not really possible to purchase pre-prepared house extension floor plans as each home,
its siting and boundaries etc. is usually very unique and a site survey must be completed first to establish these
dimensional constraints. The house extension floor plans then follow on from these survey plans.
Elevations are also part of any house extension floor plan scheme together with a location plan usually at a
scale of 1:1250 or 1:2500 that is red edged for identification purposes only. A proposed site plan at a scale of
between 1:500 and 1:200 must also be added to the house extension floor plans drawings shading the location of the
house extension for easy identification. This site pan is also red edged. Should the site owner own or control any
adjoining land (a paddock for example) then this should be edged in blue.
Most professional house extension designers will provide you with two type of house extension floor plans
drawings - one being the existing property or survey plan. The other being the proposed house extension floor plans
drawing. Anyone who simply presents the home owner with a proposed house extension floor plans drawing without a
survey floor plan is shortcutting their services to you.
A home owner can view online what any neighbours house extension floor plans are like simply
by using the local councils public access system on their web site. You will be asked to maintain copyright
protection and not use another persons design.
