Hi guys, im from guyana, a country in the south americas which many maybe havent heart about. im reading some building plans in polish and i cant figure out wat the numbers mean. it does not indicate tat it is in feet or metres. they arre large number like for example one side of the house is 1420.

How many stories does the house have?
And when was the drawing made, which year?
It should be in metres.

It should be in metres.

Or centimetres.

1420 cm = 46.59 feet

1 cm = 0.0328084 feet

Could be 14mtrs 20cm. Would seem about right for the front or rear elevation of a house.

definitely metric. are there lines to indicate the distance? most plans today measure the distance in centimetres.

check the measurements against something known on the plan... like a door.

a single doorway might be three feet wide. it won't be three metres.

Real designers/engineers shouldn't be using centimetres; it's metres or millimetres. But then again, Poles sell ham in decagrams, so it could well be centimetres...

a single door is either 800 cm or 900 cm depending on the age of the house- so if you see that - use it as a reference point.

Sounds a bit big. If it was 800mm or 900 mm I would agree with you.

Is that the hight of the door? Crap - this door must be either for a midgets house or tree house :)

no, a standard door is 80cm/800mm or 90 cm/900 mm.

height is about 200cm/2000mm.--some are more and less depending on the builder.

this doesn't include the casing.

All wrong
Door are 80cm, 90cm, 100cm
All projects are in centimetres 2000 mean 2000 cm or if you want 20 metres.
If you have any problem with projects, please contact me.
