From Old to New

We also convert old plans to new from a range of image and file formats



Marketing Floor Plans, Fire Safety Plans, HMO Plans, Land Registry Compliant Plans and Licence Plans



Our system takes the old way of making floor and house plans and converts it into an up to date modern and professional house or floor plan.

How House Plan Direct Works

Have your hand-drawn floor plan, house plan or blueprints converted to electronic computer designs. We provide a computer-aided design (CAD) service to both professionals and first-time floor plan designers.

Floor plans are increasingly useful for:

  • Marketing both domestic and commercial property for sale or to rent.
  • Designing new domestic or commercial buildings, or extensions.
  • Renovation or redecoration of internal spaces.
  • Planning applications and registering the property with the relevant authorities.

The CAD file we provide gives you a permanent representation of the current building dimensions and can be reused multiple times for a multitude of purposes. Our service is flexible and we make the plans look exactly how you want them to with customised detailing and keys, company logos and disclaimers.

We firmly believe the plans we convert should always be owned and usable by our customers so we always send the CAD file so one can be assured to be able to make or have other companies make changes to the files we provide you.

The Process

Once you have decided on the plan to suit your needs, we will guide you through the best way to measure and sketch for your specific floor plan. You then take a clear picture or scan your sketch and upload it to the website or email it to us and we will convert it to a usable electronic version.  We will send you; as standard a Jpeg, a PDF and the CAD file. This allows you to always have your floor plan on file to send back to us or other property professionals to use should you wish to make future changes or add details.


Marketing Floorplans

Our basic house plan is a floor plan of a building showing the layout and location of all fixed objects within a property. In black and white with room extent measurements and room names; the floor plan shows the location of all the different rooms, door and window openings and fixed objects such as sinks, cookers, sideboards, showers, baths, WC’s and cupboards. Our basic house plan is ideal to illustrate the layout and orientation to a potential purchaser or tenant or to help visualise any planned changes.  The floor plans are not necessarily drawn to scale (although it does help) and can, therefore, be very quick and easy to draw. We can add colour, convert it to 3D and add furniture to further add to its usefulness.

  • Add colour.
  • Add 3D.
  • Add furniture.
  • For domestic and commercial buildings.
  • Marketing a property for sale or to let.
  • To visualise layout for a renovation project.
  • To visualise furniture positions.
Scale Plan

Our scaled plans offer a more detailed option and remove the clutter of measurements. This helps to add further details specific to your needs.  The floor plans are drawn at a scale with a scale bar, location address and orientation north arrow.  A scale plan is perfect for illustrating specific information such as fire exits and alarm points or potential design changes. More time-consuming and challenging to sketch it’s recommended to sketch to scale and we will provide a guide on how best to do this.

  • Add dimensions.
  • Location map.
  • Symbols and key.
  • Boundary lines.
  • Domestic and commercial buildings.
  • Planning applications.
  • House of Multiple occupancies.
  • Lighting design.
