Do you know how to measure and sketch a house?
Let us say your planning to renovate your house or perhaps make some changes in a certain area, or planning to construct a house of your own. Do you know where and what to start?
No, but it is something I have always dreamed about. If it did not take so long I would have a degree in architecture.
Start with the foundation, outside edge to outside edge, and triple check the measurements. Everything else is based on those measurements. Save yourself some time and trouble and measure more than the affected area. Include the whole house if possible
Use a tape measure, you can get an appropriate sized tape from a hardware store relatively cheap. On the inside it is faster to use a laser measuring tool, but cheaper to use a tape measure. If you are using a contractor, make sure he verifies your measurements before he begins work or any mistakes will be blamed on you. If you are doing it your self measure two or three times. Make sure you locate and mark all plumbing and electrical outlets on the plan.
Last, no amount of measuring will uncover everything in any renovation. So don't get too upset with whoever you are working with when surprises happen..

I've always been interested in this topic and love watching that show, Haunted. I'm not sure I'd really want to see a ghost, though, and don't actively seek to disturb the dead. I had a weird experience a few years ago when we went to Salem, MA. I went to use the ladies' room, which was in the...
