Thank-you for your response Antonio.

You know, that's exactly how I've been doing it, tracing, rectangles, right down to your placement of the W x L mesurements inside each rectangle. Weird.

So I guess I must be pretty close.

I usualy draw a main floor and get that to what looks good an resonable. Then I trace the outline of the main floor using a light table I built. Then I use the outline as the starting point for the foundation drawing.


>>NOT leaving out what you suggested (closets, shower,....).

This is exactly what I'd hoped to find out. I have been including such things all along but I wanted to make sure.

>> Nope, you bought the whole thing! :-)

Yes sir. And a whole lot more to boot. :D

>>I believe "small IS beautiful"

The reason I'm putzing again, after only a few years in the new place, is because the wife and I are thinking "smaller", too. Kids are gone, house to big now.

Thank you again for your reply.

Now, back to the drawing board!

-Mike
