I've recently undertaken the large project of remodeling my home. I'm moderately limited in funds but really in no hurry so I'm not too concerned living in a construction zone for some of the time. =) To the point! I'm looking to get some blueprints together myself for my kitchen and dining area. As a small step to the whole I am combining my kitchen and dinning into a kitchen + bar. Where it gets complicated is I'm removing a barring interior wall that separates my kitchen/dining. I am also adding a large window to the front of the house right where that wall attached to the exterior wall. Any suggestions on where to obtain blueprints? I spoke with a friend who works as an architect for SDGE and he suggested I find some online that are close to what I'm looking for and modify them. I like this idea and would like to pursue it. I've browsed briefly and haven't been able to make it past the thousands of virtual sites offering to do it for me. I'll continue to delve into it further myself but figured any insight I might obtain from a forum could speed things up. Thanks in advance!
What will these blueprints be used for? No building dept. will accept them for a permit. For your own design use, free hand what you want and bring it to a draftman for a blueprint rendition. This is not something a building dept will accept either without an engineer's stamp.
