Sample Floor Plan

My parents house is currently under construction on a 300 square meter lot. My father have alotted a space for me where I can build my own house. Currently, my kids and I are living in a small apartment, so my ultimate goal is to be able to build a house I can call my own.

While waiting for my parent's house to finish, my hubby instructed me to hire an engineer or architect to do our house or floor plan for him to see, it is a must that we both agree on it. Fortunately, I have friends who offered to give me their service for free. Whenever I'm not doing anything, I would grab a pen & paper and try to draw floor plan so it's easier for me to present my preferences to anyone who might do the real floor plan. Admittedly, drawing is my greatest challenge. So I end up tearing my own drawing and throw it to the trash bin. I envy people who are gifted in art and can draw something wonderful effortlessly.

But there's no reason to fret because with blogging, I'm making great discoveries. I learned about SmartDraw from fellow blogger Heidi. SmartDraw is such an amazing tool to use to draw house/floor plans. You don't have to be a professional artist, architect or engineer to be able to put into drawing the house/floor plan you visualize using SmartDraw. It took me less than 30 minutes to download and I have 8 days free trial to enjoy it. Last night, I got glued in front of the computer trying to finish the floor plan and I did.

Hubby and I prefer a 2 storey house with 3 bedrooms (a masterbedroom and 1 room each for CJ & Acey), however, we are considering the budget that we have which is why I've done 1 storey floor plan first and I'll finish the 2 storey tonight, as soon as I'm done, I'll send them to hubby via email at the same time, present it to the architect for estimate.

Here's a sample:



I enjoyed using SmartDraw immensely. Thanks to my fellow blogger Heidi and to the internet.
