out the project, a general note will be sufficient. Also, if the majority of the walls are finished the same, this could be indicated in a general note and only the exceptions graphically drawn on the plan or in an accompanying schedule (Figure 11-6).

Scale of Finish Plans

Finish plans are drawn at as small a scale as possible, yet large enough to accurately convey information critical for placing finishes. The finishes are drawn in plan view simplistically, preventing clutter for ease of recognition. As there is often not a lot of detailed information that needs to be drawn in the floor-plan view, a scale of '/s" =l'-0" (1:100 metric) is generally used. However, if sufficient detail is needed to clarify exact configurations or details of the pieces, a scale of V4" = l'-O" (1:50 metric) can be used.

Drafting Standards for Finish Plans

The advantage of the dedicated finish plan is that more detailed information can be given to the workers on locations of specific finish treatments. A finish plan helps eliminate questions and mistakes that might arise if a finish schedule alone were used. However, remember that items such as installation instructions are not included on the finish plan, but in the written specifications.

When drawing the finish plan, the designer uses lines to show the extent and location of each finish, as shown in Figure 11-7. When the finish lines are drawn, door openings are generally ignored to ensure that the surfaces above the doors, in corners, and between doors are also covered. Finishes on the doors and frames are either specified in a note or referred to on the door schedule; they are not generally a part of the finish plan. However, some designers prefer to list their colors here on this sheet to coordinate with other finish and color selections. Floor finishes and wall finishes can generally be indicated on one drawing. However, if complex floor patterns are designed, a separate large-scale floor-finish drawing may be needed for clarity, as illustrated in Figure 11-8.

Designation of Materials in Finish Plans

If the plan or detail of a particular area is drawn at a scale of V2" = l'-O" (1:20 metric), material sizes might be shown in the plan view. However, the plans are generally too small to accurately represent the size of most materials. For example, 4 x 4 in. (101.6 mm) is too small to draw at the Vs" (1:100 metric) or W (1:50 metric) scales. Likewise, the attempt at drawing wood grain in floors or even the widths and lengths of random floor planks is not necessary in these small-scale drawings. The most critical item to include in such cases is the start and stop of the flooring, and the direction of the pattern if it has one. In many CAD programs, the software for rendering finish materials is available, but the readability of the drawing should take precedence over drawing them to scale. A different scale can be selected and assigned to the patterns for ease of visibility. As mentioned before, this can be done on a large blow-up drawing of the finish material, cross-referenced to the main plan. See Figure 11-9 for a detail of a tile floor pattern.

Sometimes a texture, color, fabric, or other feature cannot be accurately specified in the finish schedule. In such instances, a swatch of material or paint color chip is often attached to the drawing or put in the specification booklet. Or a material can be scanned and placed digitally in the schedule, as illustrated in Figure 11-10.
