The floor plans below show the changes that were made to a house over a six-month period.
Model answer for a floor plan
The illustrations reveal the alterations that occurred at a residential building. Overall, the main difference is that the renovated building has one less internal wall.
Looking at the point of entry to the house in the middle, there is no longer a porch in the updated house. In addition, on the left side of the house the wall has been removed between the sitting room and kitchen to make one large living space, with a dining table placed in the middle. The cooking area has been moved to the right-hand wall of the kitchen, and there is no longer an area for eating in the rear of the kitchen.
Turning to the right-hand side of the house, in the rear the bathroom has been modified by moving the toilets to the middle of the room and replacing the bathtub with a shower. The wardrobes have been removed from both bedrooms. In addition, the window has been removed from the rear bedroom, while the front bedroom has a smaller window.
