Creation of a floor plan

A floor plan is a visual representation of the living area, garage (if any) and other structures present on residential real estate properties.

Creation of a floor plan requires an appointment with a REST field technician to physically visit the subject property to take all necessary measurements. The plans will include room measurements (rounded to the nearest inch) in larger room. All rooms are measured and included in our estimate of square footage whether or not the measurements are typed onto the plan. The plans will also show windows and doors, bath fixtures, appliance location and built-in counters. Small balcony and patio areas attached to the property will be included at no additional cost.

To include more extensive yard detail see our patio or site plan options below.

Once creation of the plan is complete and payment has been received, an email will be sent with a PDF file of the plan. Other file types are available upon request.

The invoice will contain our estimate of sq ft. Our estimate of sq ft is based on our measurements. Separate structures will each have their own measurements. Living space and non living space (garages, unfinished basements, sheds etc.), as best we can determine, will be listed separately.

We have no knowledge and take no responsibility for determining what is legally considered living space and what is or is not legally permitted as living space.

Site plans and Patio plans

A site plan consists of the original 2d floor plan along with major landscaping elements and items of interest on the lot that would be seen in an aerial view of the house, such as walkways, driveway, planters and flower beds, pool / spa areas, BBQ areas and large patio areas. The entire size and shape of the lot is included.

A patio plan consists of the original 2d floor plan along with items of interest attached to the house, such as walkways, planters and flower beds, as well as significant items within a short distance of the house, such as pool / spa areas, bbq areas and larger patio areas.

Field technicians reserve the right to decline to measure any property or area they deem unsafe to enter or access. Unsafe conditions include, but are not limited to, unsafe ladders, excessive heat, fumes or dampness, active mold, unlit areas, crawl spaces, unsafe decks, and unrestrained or potentially dangerous animals.

*Pricing is based on the total sq ft of all structures measured including, but not limited to, homes, condos, guest houses, pool houses, cabanas, garages and storage areas. Attics and basements are only measured upon request and if safely accessible. The additional sq ft will be added to the total measured sq ft and billed accordingly.

All measurements provided are deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Sq ft calculations are intended to be for billing purposes only. Floor plans are visual representation of the subject property and are not intended to be exact duplicates.
