Everyone wants to move outside in good weather so a well-designed and convenient porch, screen porch, pergola, patio, lanai, or deck is essential. It lets a small house live large. The trick is to make sure that such a space is ample enough for sitting and convenient to the kitchen or great room for easy indoor-outdoor entertaining.
If the front door opens directly to the living or dining space there’s often no notation, just the door swing. Door swings trace the swing of the door in and out — good to keep in mind as you think about furniture placement. Sliding doors are noted not as swings but as thin lines parallel to — but thinner than — the line of the wall.
Is it wide enough to really use? You need at least a six foot depth for sitting and 8 feet is preferable. For outdoor dining you need even more. Rustic farmhouse plan, includes a useful front veranda and a “Grilling Porch” at the rear off the kitchen. A well designed porch helps a house expand in good weather.
Stairs are drawn as a series of rectangles usually with a direction arrow indicating whether the stairs travel up to the next higher floor or down. Where the stair rises 3 ft above the floor it is cut with a diagonal line. Stairs above the “cut line” are shown with dashed lines.
