2 Blueprints vs. Floor Plans
A floor plan (floor plan, remodeling plan, room plan) is a scaled drawing of a building, room or home as viewed from above. It will show placement of rooms, doors, windows, major fixtures and appliances, etc. Blueprints are far more detailed and technical plans for your remodel or other construction project. The name ‘blueprint’ is derived from the material and the coating used to produce these plans in the past. A complete set of blueprints will include a floor plan, elevation drawings of each side of the structure, basement or foundation plan, including footings and bearing walls, a complete electrical layout, a framing plan, drawings of all plumbing and mechanical systems, cross section drawings of structural elements, a roof plan, and a site plan.
