Here is some information on how you can develop your own house extension plans.
There are examples and steps on how to draw out your design. The guide will explain how to develop plans for either single or two storey extensions.
These drawings can be used as part of a planning application or to discuss with architects.
Step One – Drawing Out The Survey Plan
First of all you will have to survey all of the existing building. Once you have done this you will be able to draw out a plan of the existing building.
Here is a drawing showing which measurements you will have to take in order to complete a room profile survey.
Once you have taken all of the measurements you will then be able to draw out a plan. To ensure it is drawn accurately use a scale ruler when plotting the measurements.
Here are some survey profiles you may find useful.

Step 2 – Drawing The Existing And Proposed Plans
Now that you have all the measurements it’s time to begin drawing out the existing floor plan.
Once you have a completed existing plan begin to start developing a proposed scheme. Use overlays to show the alterations you would like to make to the building.
