Do yourself a favor - get a copy of Get Your House Right.
It is a map through the thousand design decisions you'll be making as you design a house. It is a dictionary of the Architectural Vocabulary our predecessors worked to perfect and articulate, and is your key to taking your designs to the next level.
You have to drive around this life and see houses designed by total amateurs, littering the neighborhoods and fields along the roadway - don't let your designs fall into this category.
You owe it to yourself to buy this book and study it.
Hello. Are contour lines and building (floor, roof) elevation data normally included in a topographical survey? I had expected this from my topo + boundary survey, but the surveyor does not appear to have provided these details in my survey deliverables (attached).
I created the .plan from the .dwg, having imported all details using Home Designer Pro 2020). Did I do the import incorrectly?
The vendor has become non-responsive. In case I'm unable to settle this via simple/friendly means, how would I submit and settle a dispute about this?
Here is the text of the agreement, which doesn't specify one way or the other that contour lines & building elevations will be included, so I believe I'm left with standard & traditional service definitions of a Topographical survey.
2 additional pages of the agreement include only standard legal-ese (e.g. arbitration agreement), not any further definitions of services. All service descriptions are referenced back to the proposal shown above.
As always, thank you!
I am working on launching a start up idea, and need some input from architects. Could you please help fill out my short survey? Thanks!
