Giving instructions to people for building something needs to be very accurate. The person will read your instructions and then try to build a thing. If you want to build instructions for the house then only words won’t work. Whether you are looking for instructions for building an actual house or a model of a house, you need a step-by-step guide. Here are some tips that can help you.
Use images whenever possible
You must include images whenever possible. For each step, an image of that step will make the reader understand what you are talking about. You should use images to give instructions along with a written explanation. You should label the images properly so that the reader understands the sequence of steps. You should number the steps too.
Use pictures of tools and parts
In building a model house, you need blocks, nails, screws, pins, etc. You should have pictures of these tools so that the reader understands which tool is being mentioned in the instruction.
There is software available for house model building. You can use those to develop instructions. LDD, for example, is a software for building any model, using blocks, of your imagination. You can build houses too. Ldraw is another software you can use. Now after you have to build a house and want others to try building the same house, you can use a CAD program, like MLCad, that is compatible with Ldraw to capture the model. Then you should generate images of every step. Use a layout program to convert the images to instruction. You can use Lpub or MS Word for it.
When you write instructions, make sure that the picture quality is good. Otherwise, the readers will have a tough time understanding the instructions properly.
