Floor Plan Symbols Handout

Introduction
One of the most important responsibilities of a design professional is to document the design with construction drawings. It is imperative that the drawings incorporate symbols, notes, and dimensions in a careful and consistent manner so the plan is uncluttered, easy to read, and understandable to everyone involved in the project design and construction. The design and construction industry has developed standard symbols to represent common building components. You should use these standard symbols in your sketches so that other professionals will understand your intended design. Using the appropriate symbols for the living space, including symbols for doors, windows, cabinets, appliances, and plumbing fi tures! and those more closely associated with the construction of the structure, including electrical circuits, material description and si"ing, and proper dimensioning, provides for the creation of a floor plan that is easy to read and also easy to build. # good source for information about standard products and their appropriate costs is the $weet%s catalogs &www.sweets.com'.
