Part 1: What is a Floor Plan?

A floor plan is a simple line drawing that shows rooms as though seen from above. Walls, hallways and windows are often drawn to scale. From a floor plan of a house or building, you can know how the elements within a room are arranged.

The difference between a floor plan and a construct is that a floor plan is simpler and a construction plan. To build a house, you need a complete set of construction plans that include floor plans, cross-section drawings, electrical plans, elevation drawings, and many other kinds of diagrams.
