Site Plan 101

Making A Site Plan For Your Home

Thanks for all your kind words on yesterday’s blog post.  It’s easy to get overwhelmed by everything, but I am doing better than I was over the weekend.  Thank you!  As promised, here is the blog post on how to create your own site plan…

Creating a site plan for your home is both useful and fun to do.  Not only do you get to know your property better, but you can develop some of your artistic skills as well.  In order to create your own site plan, you can follow these simple instructions:

1. Use a tape measure and write down the dimensions of the perimeter of your house and property

2. Measure anything of significance that you want to include (garden, orchard, shed, pathways, swimming pool, pond, etc.)

3. Use either graph paper and an architectural scale or a computer program (such as CAD) to plot the measurements

4. After you have drafted your house and property, apply color to the site plan

If you decide to do this, please share your site plan….I’d love to see!
