How to Draw House Plan Step By Step

In this article, we are discussing how to plan house, any illiterate people planning house easy so we are planning how to draw house plan step by step

Required sum basic information for a design house.

Step 1 – Size of Plot

The size of the plot is defined with its Length, Breadth & Hight.

Step 2 – Setbacks

A setback is defined as the open space in-between the compound wall & the wall of the house, which is being planned for.

Step 3 – Location & Width of the road

Location & Width of the road will helps to assign a dedicated space for car entry, parking & exit along with entrance gate.

Step 4 – North Direction

The direction of the north is the best to get an idea about the four cardinal directions ( east, west, north, and south), which inversely helps in understanding the local climatic conditions throughout the year.

Step 5 – Climatic information

A house needs to be responsive towards the climatic condition at any particular place. If taken into consideration, it will help in taking more calculated design initiatives for the house planning.

Step 6 – Do R&D for sample Floor plan.

A bit of online research on house planning and design mayn’t be such a bad idea if it can give you some new perspective to look at modern house designs. Do check sites which showcase floor plans & designs for your region.

Step 7 – Divide Plot in Grids

Draw the plot boundary and then divide the plot in two equal half on both directions, i.e., vertical and horizontal.

Once done, then draw similar lines about 2 feet or 600 mm apart from each other on both the directions.

This way, you have created an imaginary grid line for developing your house plan further.

Step 8 – Make bubble Diagram (2/3 times)

Once you have your drawing ready, then list down your entire requirement for the house. Do mention tentative area as the requirement maybe. See example

  • Living room
  • Bedroom
  • Kitchen
  • Dining, etc

As listed above, using these spaces on the drawing created before the plot for placing the rooms as per your use and sense.

Don’t worry too much in the beginning if certain room/spaces don’t complement each other. This is your first draft & not the final floor plan layout, so do not worry if it doesn’t look perfect. Have some patience, and it will evolve with time.

Step 9 – Draw the room layout with a single line.

Once the bubble diagrams are more in order of your requirement, then use a colored pen to firm up the lines to indicate walls (9-inch wall).

Do show door openings of around 3 feet minimum & window openings, which can be anything between 2 feet to more. Use the grid below as guidelines for taking the size of the window.

Step 10 – Draw with Double Line /thickness for Walls.

In the next step place, another tracing sheet on top of the original drawing and now consider the walls to be of a 9-inch thickness and convert those initial single lines to double-wall lines.

Step 11 – Draw Doors

In a similar way as before indicate the door openings as and where required. Do cretin changes in the floor plan as required for accommodating entry to rooms/spaces.

Step 12 – Draw Window Openings

Following the same understanding as similar to doors indicate the window openings on the drawing. Do keep it in mind that cross ventilation is very important.

Do check the wind direction for the plot also. Do take rainfall, snowfall & other climatic information under consideration.

  1. A very nicely compiled article with almost all the aspects of a house well covered. The best part of this article being the measurements which are in Square Feet and hence easy to understand and estimate. I however have below listed questions. See if you can help me with some clarifications.

    Q1. What are Media Rooms, Den Rooms, Utility/Den Rooms & Powder Rooms ?

    Q2. What is the difference between Great Room, Living Room & Family Room ?

    Q3. What is the difference between Master Bathroom and Full Bathroom ?

    Q4. What is the difference between a Workshop Room or a Home-Office Room ?

    Q5. How to make provisions for a Parking lot with more than 3-4 Four Wheelers plus 2 Two-Wheelers ?

    Q6. How to make provisions for a small POOJA Room, of about 4ft (wide) X 3ft (dpth) X 10ft (ht) ?

    I am asking all these questions for SELF / PERSONAL usage only, not for any Commercial.

    Thanks in Advance & God Bless !!
