Finding Blueprints for a Preschool Classroom Loft?

My daughter wants me to build a preschool loft for her daycare. She wants stairs up the side and a market awning on one side. Where can I look at structural blueprints, reminiscent of a corner pulpit?

While I am not fully clear on your question, I understand enough to offer you the following direction.

If you are going to be making structural changes to a fixed location either in a home or an office, you are going to need to contact your local community government office (usually it is a building and permits office) and find out if you need permits and and specific requirements you need to meet before you start.

They can tell you if you are going to need to hire an architect to draw up plans, have those approved, etc. You may need to have an electrician involved also if there is going to be lights or light switches related to the area.

Anything that is dealing with building and children is usually very highly regulated so I would start there and find out what you need to do by law, then start to find a good set of plans.

Post back what you learn.

It sounds like your daughter is trying to do a room edition to her home and create a preschool in her home. In cases like this she needs to find a good contractor that will be able to advise her if the structure of her home will be able to support the added weight and the room edition on the top of her home. There are certain support beams and foundation structure that need to be taken into consideration. Plus on top of this she needs to get a building permit to add this to her home. The building inspector will need to approve the structure for the safety of the kids before she can use this and open up. I would do a bit more checking on this before jumping into this project. There is a lot more needed before you begin that just drawing up a blueprint and start building this place for children to be taken care of in.

I've read your question several times and I'm still not sure exactly what type of blueprints you're looking for.

However, If you are near a university that has an architectural department you may be able to talk with someone in charge to see if they can help you.
Although this may not be the best time to find someone at the university.
I've known of a teacher giving something like this as a special project for extra credit.

Other than that, I'm not sure we can help you unless you explain more about what you are looking for.

You would need to go to the city , for your home blueprints. Apply for permit or contact a contractor and he can pull the permits. Some cities have rules and exclusions to building on to structures.

Try contacting your local county clerk for assistance.
