Design your own house blueprints
Ever had the desire of designing you own house blueprints? Contrary to what you might think, creating your very own house blueprints is actually not that complicated.
First, you should have a pretty good idea of your desired outcome. Before you start the drawing on paper, it will be very helpful to get an essential idea of what your house is going to look like. For an example, it’s important to know how many floors are needed and how many rooms the house will have.
For the perimeter, in order to draw the outside walls of the house, use a pencil. To get a larger scale, try and take up the whole grid paper.
After you’re done with the first perimeter, draw a second perimeter one grid away, even if this grid is closer or further away. It doesn’t matter. This will make the end result look better because it adds thickness to your house blueprints.
If your house has a second floor, then go ahead and grab another piece of paper and put it on the top of the first-floor paper. What this does is makes the papers through so it’s easier for you to trace the walls for the second floor.
The following step is to sketch the interior walls, by using the same style as the walls on the exterior, but remember to add all the rooms needed for the house. The utility room is very often forgotten even if that’s where you keep your washer, dryer, water filter, heater, etc., so be careful when it comes to this aspect.
Now, you need to start drawing the windows and the doors. After you’re finished with the walls, the following stage is to add windows and doors. Their sizes can differ. For an example, the door to the closet will probably be a little smaller than the front door.
In order to create a window, rub out that part of the wall that the window goes to. Sketch, between the walls, a line in the middle. If you want to add thickness to the window, add another line, to the outside, a grid. You might need a ruler to help you draw a straight line, between a grid, in the middle. Most often, the rooms that are connected to the perimeter will be having at least one window, but it’s up to you, really, how many windows you want in each room.
Now, to the doors. They are much easier to draw. Just simply delete the wall where you want the door to fit and then sketch a line between the walls. It almost exactly like the window, but without the thickness.
Find templates in order for the utilities to be drawn. You will need to get a little more into detail here because the house needs toilets, sinks, cabinets, stove, a fridge, and sinks. To help you draw this, you need templates. If you don’t have templates, just draw these utilities from a basic sky view. You don’t have to be very thorough with this thing, just enough to tell what each utility is.
