Mason Street floor plan is above. Floor plans depict the overall layout of living, working, and outdoor areas. Floor plans, despite the fact that they should be scale drawings, do not provide enough information for builders to construct a home or other structure. A floor plan, on the other hand, is essentially a simple graphic that shows room layout and serves as a conceptual starting point. A builder need complete blueprints, or construction-ready drawings, that include technical data not included on typical floor plans.
