We drew the proposed cabinet in elevation, concentrating on coveted details. I didn’t refer to a room plan.
As a serial renovator, I already had a rapport with my cabinetmaker. We sat down casually, early in an extensive job, to sketch up a Victorian-style bath vanity. The working drawing for the cabinet shop was done in elevation. When the cabinet was delivered—to the newly built room—I realized that the tall section, with drawers as deep as the cabinet, was blocked by the toilet. Oops.
