What is Front Elevation : APNAGHAR

Front Elevation plays an important role in building a house. A Front elevation of home should make an appealing visual statement and accurately convey the style of the home. To achieve this, careful attention is paid to every detail of the design; Which is taken care while designing the Home Plan. Apnaghar as a professional company do pays equal importance to front elevation.

House elevations are architectural drawings that show how a home will look from specific angles. Elevations are a key part of the way Apnaghar communicate their designs with clients and the contractors who will build the home. Like all architectural drawings, house elevations are drawn to scale, meaning that the length and thickness of each line directly corresponds with measurements of the finished home.

Parts of House Elevation :

A front elevation is a part of a scenic design. It is a drawing of the scenic element (or the entire set) as seen from the front and has all the measurements written on it. The front elevation of a home plan is a straight-on view of the house as if you were looking at it from a perfectly centred spot on the same plane as the house. Also called an "entry elevation," the front elevation of a home plan shows features such as entry doors, windows, the front porch and any items that protrude from the home, such as side porches or chimneys. However, side walls are not visible at all unless they will be built at an angle that is visible from the centred front view.

Side elevations of a home plan are similar to the front elevations, but are drawn from each side of the home, again in a straight-on view. Architects label these elevations by right and left side, determined as if you were facing the home. Directional notations, such as "Right side elevation (north)" help minimize confusion when interpreting the drawings. Side elevations of a home plan are useful for showing windows and other home features, and they also show the home's depth. The side view of the front and back porches helps contractors visualize porch size in relation to the home. Roof pitch (steepness) is also indicated in side elevations.

Rear Elevations and Notes
Rear elevations of home plan present the back side of the house, with yet another straight-on view. As with the other drawings, notes regarding features that can't be seen from straight-on views may be included on this drawing. Other notes included on elevations may indicate the materials contractors should use for certain areas, such as window or door type, siding materials and exterior insulation.

Another type of side elevation is a split elevation. This is a view of the home's interior, drawn as if the house has been split in half down the middle or other indicated line. Split elevations show details for interior feature heights, floor thickness, wall thickness and stair rise.

A front elevation of home plan is an elevation of a piece of scenery or properties from the front view. It show dimensions and can be drafted or quickly drawn if not to major a piece. A painter's elevation for the front would show the same object, with dimensions, to scale, (preferably 1/2") in color so the scenic artists could paint it.
