Housekeeping: Sketching & My Basement Re-do

Last week I talked about how designers use sketches to help clients visualize a space.   One of those types of sketches is called an elevation.  It’s basically a drawing of just one wall, or an element on a wall, and is flat (no dimension).  But, they are quick to pull-off and give you a good idea of how the space is going to look.

I did a quick elevation of the wall in my basement to get ready for my basement re-do…you can see a picture of the actual room on this post.  I started with quick sketches to figure out the placement of the shelves, and then did a more detailed sketch to make sure I liked my plan.

Have a happy weekend!  Keeping my fingers crossed that the weatherman is wrong and we don’t get any more snow!
