If you don’t have a floor plan to digitalise, you will need to create it manually.
Before you can start designing your apartment or house, you will need to create its plan. That includes rooms, hallways, several floors (you can create and fill them one by one, but don’t forget to save the place for the stairs!), as well as doors, windows and, possibly, a roof.
If you’re working on a real apartment plan, make sure you have all dimensions at hand. You wouldn’t want to realise at the end of the project that measurements were incorrect, and the whole plan cannot be brought to life.
There are several options:
- A square room with all the walls of equal length;
- A rectangular room with two walls bigger than the other two;
- Room with several corners;
- Magic cube.
Although predefined rooms may seem like a good pick, you will need to adjust the length of the wall for every wall in the room if it differs from the template. With a bit of practice, you can get quite good at using the drawing tool that might speed up the whole process for you a lot.
Once that is done, you can name each room to navigate your plan better.
The next step is to place doors, arcs and windows.
