An elevation is a horizontal orthographic projection a building on to a vertical plane, the vertical plane normally being parallel to one side of the building. Architects also use the word elevation as a synonym for façade, so the “north elevation” is the north-facing wall of the building.

The exterior elevation is much like the foundation layout sheet. While there are dimensions that must be adhered to such as the finished floor and plate height and the roof pitch, there are things that can be changed is absolutely necessary. Things of a more decorative nature can always be changed or altered to better suit your own specific style. Things like banding detail, sill detail, and roof tile (or shingle type) can be changed, but following the plans will assure the best results.
