The floor plan is an essential part of the construction as it shows the whole layout of the house from an aerial view. From the size of the house and the type, the plan should reveal:
• Permanent fixtures.
• Size and location of windows and doors.
• Interior and exterior walls.
• Location and size dimension.
• Room names.
• Drawing scale.
• Material symbols.
• Architectural symbols and conventions.
Since the whole actual measurements of the building cannot fit a paper, then it is drawn to scale by the architect designing the plan, and it is up to the contractor to read and apply the real dimensions in the construction process. Using CADD pro software it hastens up the process of drawing as it automatically generates everything reducing the time to draft by hand.
Architectural symbols and conventions
They include the north arrows that indicate the north direction from the sun and thus showing the orientation of the house
Penrose floor plan or blueprint is the heart of any construction process without it in play. Then the contractor will never be able to deliver what the client wants.

Twill lead to delivering a different structure to the client, though reading and comprehending the floor plan is not an easy task. It gets better with a little bit of understanding and practice.
