measurements don't add up

Recommended Posts

New user here. Thanks in advance for any help.  i have a scaled plan I am trying to redraw. It is of a house we are going to buy.  I gone one wall at a time. Making sure to enter the measurements on the plan. Problem is when I get back to the starting point it does not meet up. It is off by 4 foot north to south. 2 foot east to west.  I have added up all the measurement on the orginal plan. They are correct and line up.  Just does not transpose for some reason. Any thought on what I am doing wrong?

Did you measure inside and out on the new house? If your measurements add up correctly, and you entered everything correctly, then the model should be correct.


 


Have you double checked all the dimensions?

Difficult to guess what is wrong without seeing your plan and an image of the one you are trying to redraw.  Best guess is a difference in between the wall thicknesses in the original plan as opposed to the Home Designer walls, or possibly with where the dimensions are locating the walls.
