SELF SURVEY & MEASURING GUIDE
We don't need your sketches to be beautifully drawn and perfectly to scale. We can take the even roughest sketch and turn it into an amazing architectural drawing.
We just need sketches of both your ground floor and any upstairs floors.
Draw your hall or landing
As a rule, this is the best place to start
First, sketch the floor you’re working on as a whole
Follow the steps below and see the guide to the left
Start with the hall/landing
Then add each room surrounding it
Make sure you draw in the rough position of all the doors...
...and the windows
Then label each of the rooms
6. Now sketch each room separately.
Include the hall/landing (use separate pieces of paper if you need to)
7. Add any windows, doors and stairs
8. Time to measure – Add your dimensions.
Anything you think may help
Now add the room name to the sketch
9. Add the height of ceiling, the head height of the windows from the floor and the height of the sills from the floor
Most importantly, DON'T WORRY. If you miss something, we'll ask you for it.
Sketch each room individually
Take photos from different angles
10. Take some photos – use the guide to the left, but also add as many others as you think might be helpful. You can never have too many photos!!
Describe your vision in as much detail as possible – include
What you’ll use the rooms for
Type of outside doors (bi-folds/French etc.)
Any Special window requirements (Velux windows)
Roof type (pitched or flat)
