We can quickly and cost-effectively convert your floor plan sketches into nice 2D floor plans.
There’s tons of services and apps out there that can make floor plans for estate agents. But if you’re like me, then you’ll agree that nothing beats sketching out the layout of the property with a good old fashioned pencil and paper with the help of a laser measure, this is especially true if you’re a DEA producing EPCs for your estate agent clients. With a little extra detail, your sketch of the property for the EPC can be sent to us to produce a floor plan.
The only issue with the pencil and paper method is the time and extra processing it takes to convert into a finished floor plan. Now we can help with that! We use AutoCAD or Metropix to convert sketches of property layouts into digital floor plans in prety much any file type you need.
We help estate agents, DEA’s and property photographers all over the country to quickly convert the sketch plans they send us into a finished floor plan. We aim to do this in around 3 hours (give or take) so the floor plan can be added to the property listing in super quick time.
If you work with us already for any of our other service like Image Enhancement, you’ll know we like to keep things low cost and simple. That’s why for floor plan conversion we offer one low price for the vast majority of property types, everything up to and including 6 bedroom 3 storey houses – we turn sketch plans into floor plans for just £6.95.
Choose what to show on your plans
Easily set up what info you’d like to be shown on your plans, as default we show everything including the gross internal approximate floor areas (in sq ft and sq m), the individual room dimensions, and the room names. The choice is yours though, select exactly what to show and what to leave out. If you draw a north arrow showing the orientation of the property, then we’ll include that as well. For anything else, just let us know and we’ll see what we can do!
That legal bit at the bottom of the plan that warns people that the plan “may not be an exact representation” etc can be customised to whatever text you like, or you’re welcome to use our default disclaimer if that works for you.
Branding & custom colours
I’ll tell you what looks awesome… matching the colour of your floor plans to your brand colours. We’ll we have just the thing to facilitate that. Choose the colours for the walls, room fill and text to create a bespoke colour scheme just to your liking and ensure your brand consistency is on point!
If you’re a property pro like a DEA producing plans for your clients then you can set up all your clients custom info to be shown and brand colours just one time and we’ll remember their preferences each time you send us a plan for them, simply choose which client it’s for on the upload page.
Email us your sketch from the property
Don’t want to waste a second getting your sketch to us? Whilst you’re still at the property, take a snap of your floor plan sketch on your phone just as soon as you finish it and email it over to email@example.com and we’ll get to work on it right away! It may even be ready and waiting for you by the time you get back to the office.
Just write on the sketch the following:
- Your User ID (find this in My Account > My Details)
- The property address at the top of the plan (if you want to show it)
- A property reference
- For DEA’s tell us which client it’s for and we’ll apply their custom settings
