For the floor plan, please follow instructions below

  • The closets need to be empty enough so the photographer can laser measure the space with the 360 laser device:
    In order to draft the closets for the floor plan, the photographer will need to see at least a bit of the back wall, and a bit of the side walls of each closet. (please see diagram below)

     

  • The closets need to be accessible: Please make sure there are no large heavy items in front of the closets that prevent us from opening them.
