The open concept layout is relatively new to the world of residential design. Traditionally, homes were designed and built to accommodate different rooms for different functions. Each room was assigned its distinct function, the kitchen was for cooking, the dining room was for eating, and the living room was for gathering, entertaining, or relaxing, and that was that.
To adjust the land properly, the designer creates a grading plan to show how the topography will change to accommodate the building design. In other words, the contours are redrawn to remove soil, cut existing contour, or add soil, fill existing contour.
