Best practices showing old and new renovation changes

Recommended Posts

What is the best practice in order to explain to home owner and contractor Changes in building from Old to New.

Example the second floor of standard house. We wish to move non-structural walls expanding a hallway and dividing a bed room into a study and small laundry room.

Is there a way of greying out/ ghosting  original walls showing new layout to show the benefits in size and flow? 

This will help with visual types and keeping track of changes being made. I am guess this would be done with a layering detail?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

I always use two plans: one that reflects existing conditions (as built) and then a save-as copy of that plan called: version one, two etc. These plans show potential changes or additions that are proposed to be made. I do agree with Eric in that knowing what software title and version would determine any specific suggestions because different titles and versions vary wildly as to capabilities and choices to get things done. What do you have????
