Architectural photographing of existing buildings is limited to the preparation of architectural plans - distributions of the premises. The sketches must be drawn clearly and contain all the dimensions needed for further work. Where necessary, in addition to all measures and details with text can be indicated specific moments in a larger scale. Curves in the sketch according to their nature, must be marked with the appropriate radius.
Apart from the three sizes of the premises: length, width and height is necessary to capture the location of the openings (doors, windows), where and at what distance from near walls are the doors and the windows, what is their height from floor to the upper end. We need also to measure at what height from the floor and the distance from the adjacent walls is the chimney in this room.

The distance must be at least 500 mm. and only moving the chair, it should be 200 mm. In the bedrooms arrangement of the furniture must comply with navigation lines of the premises and to be provided free access to doors and windows in the room. In front of the wardrobe in the bedroom we must provide clearance of 600 mm. in order for normal use. In the Kids Room with available beds arranged one to another, the minimum light space between them must be 850 mm.
