I’m new to making construction documents. I’ve been reading the Sonders/Donley book and they talk about level of detail, but I have a more specific question. How much detail needs to be there in terms of interior aspects, like kitchen appliances and cabinets, etc.? Do I need to (in my floorplan and/or interior elevations) specify where the stove, refrigerator, and sink will be? And if so, is it easy to change those locations after the permit has been granted or does it get to be a PITA with plan re-submissions and inspectors having to come out for every little change?
What about other aspects like windows and room dimensions? Obviously I will have details of where windows are and room dimensions but if I want to make changes like moving the wall a foot or so or adding or subtracting widows is that a big deal after the permit?
I guess it matters what county/state I’m dealing with so I should mention I’m in northern california in a somewhat rural area called Lake county.
