A simple elevation drawing is an orthographic projection drawing that shows one side of the house. A simple elevation drawing aims to show the finished appearance of a given side of the house and furnish vertical height dimensions. In simple words, an elevation plan is a view of a building seen from one side, a flat representation of one façade. As the simple elevation plan suggests, it is the most common view used to describe the external appearance. The primary procedure of drawing an elevation plan is to place the floor plan directly above the space where the elevation is to be drawn, then create the exterior walls represented by the elevation.
