Floor Plans for Homes

Andru Martinez and Mustang Staff

 Students in 21st Century class designed floor plans for homes using software like Smart Draw. They created scaled diagrams of rooms and yard space from above, providing a blueprint vision of the arrangement of home features and furniture. Floor plans are useful in planning furniture layout and wiring systems. They are usually drawn to ¼ – inch scale, with ¼ inch representing 1 foot. Students had to consider the building’s north and south orientation and the position of the windows for the preference of natural light during the day. Other considerations included the placement of bathrooms away from dining rooms and living rooms and creating a pleasant environment for living spaces.
