A floor plan is a drawing that shows the locations of walls, doors, windows, plumbing fixture, appliances, cabinets, etc. It’s as if we sliced horizontally through the house and took a picture looking straight down. Sometimes, an item may not look the way you would expect it too on a floor plan. This is usually because it’s a generic symbol for that feature. Because of the generic symbols/measurements and code requirements, floor plans sometimes have to be modified from what is given to us. If you know that a particular arrangement will work with specific products being used, let us know and we will adjust the plans accordingly.
Floor plans don’t show features like electrical fixtures, plumbing layouts, and HVAC layouts. Those plans are drawn separately to eliminate confusion. Clydesdale Frames does not draw up plumbing layouts and HVAC layouts because there is such a variation in how the systems are handled. Also because of code variations in jurisdictions between each of the building locations.
Every floor plan has a compass. It’s helpful when relaying changes to use it to state where something is moving. By stating the direction something is moving, there is no need to establish “your right or my right”. This is especially helpful when relaying changes in a non face to face setting. (On sheet A1, the kitchen sink needs to move 4'-0? to the east.)
