Home Building Elevations
The term home building elevations usually refers to what is shown on the Architects or other home
designers plans as to what the new home building will look like. These are normally referred to as
front, side and rear elevations.
Most home building elevations are drawn to a scale of 1:100 although some large buildings are shown down
to scale of 1:200 or smaller home building elevations are drawn larger at a scale of 1:50.
Sometimes sectional elevations are used where a visual cut line through a home building may have to go
through p[art of the structure. These are usually added to show elevations of normally hard to view
elevations of the actual building in the real world.
Home building elevations are particularly useful for showing clients a designers vision of the scheme proposal
or to confirm that the client or building owner is achieving their requirements.
