What do designers do? 

Designers are the professionals responsible for drawing plans and sketches of potential buildings for them to be built. An architect is one of the widely known designers. If you want a particular style of a house, an artist will draw blueprints that contractors will use during the construction process.   

The plan a designer draws include the outside overview and the floor plan. However, some designers don’t include a detailed plan. They only draw an outside outline of the house. Some of the materials they might use in designing your home include paper, protractors, pencils and rulers.
