In this interview with livabl.com, Marilyn goes into depth on how to read a floorplan, why they’re important, and who they’re for – hint: it’s not the owner!
“Your house plan shouldn’t be an indecipherable puzzle for you. Now you have the tools to read your house plan and, more importantly, ask critical questions about it. Be sure that your architect is up to date on all the building and zoning codes if you want something changed. If a real estate agent gives you a basic sketch of your home, double-check those measurements with the builder and the architect. Above all, remember that the house plan is ultimately a map, but the architect can guide your decisions on if it’s the correct map for you to follow by asking you lots of questions about your life as it is now and looking ahead.”
