Easiest way to show "before" and "after" in a plan?

Recommended Posts

I am just getting started ... but I am trying to create a few options for knocking down a back wall and building an addition ... so I want to be able to flip through a few with my wife to show her our current house and a few options.

 

Any thoughts?

One way....

 

draw up the existing house , then do a "save as"  with and add an extra name like _Option1  or _Rev.1 (-9) to the Name,  than you'll have a few backups of the plan ( if it all goes pear shaped) and a few to change till your/Her heart is content , once narrowed down, do another "Save As"  with a new name extended name like _Final .

 

I usually have   _Existing

                         _Proposed

                          _Final

 

Files in my Project Folder , along with a back up of each just incase....ie add _BU to end of each name.

Yeah, I did this ... but I guess I wanted to know how one can show "dotted lines" when something is "new" and easily calculate the "new" square footage as well.  Thanks for the reply though!
