What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to How to Read a Floor Plan
Every plan should include a legend that indicates what the project is and what floor the plan is of. The legend should also include the scale (1/4 inch equals 1 foot; 1/8 inch equals 1 foot etc.) at which the floor plan is drawn. Sometimes the scale can be written out, while other times a graphic scale, such as shown here, is provided. A graphic scale is useful when the drawing gets reduced or enlarged or otherwise altered so that putting a ruler on the plan to measure distances no longer helps.A legend can also include a north arrow. In fact, it's a drawing convention that the top right of the drawing page is always north. Other items that can be included in a legend are the owners' names, the project address, the architect and other designers' names and the date (especially important with a construction drawing so revisions can be managed).
