View original blueprints of sets as well as director's maps and floor plans of sets (printing disabled) in this section.
These blueprints as well as the downsized reproductions of original blueprints come from LORIMAR's art department. The downsized copies were handed to all staff and crew members concerned for their day-to-day operations, in particular to each episode's director as well as to the set dressers and prop masters. Some directors made annotations or added lines to indictate the camera angles from which they wanted to shoot scenes in the particular episode. Some of them were either drawn or amended for the specific use of the sets in certain seasons or episodes (listed in parentheses).
Some files may contain additional pages with explanations by the DFCF board, such as camera angles and further details as well as changes in the set or how the same set was redressed for different purposes.
SOUND STAGE PLANS
These blueprints give an overview of how the major permanent sets were arranged on the sound stages.
Detailed plans of each set can be found in the Permanent Sets section below.

A permanent set is a set standing for a longer part of a production year, a whole season or even a few years. Permanent sets, however, were usually taken down and put into storage during the show's hiatus in the summer to make room for other productions on the same sound stage. They were reassembled after hiatus - sometimes with a few alterations, whether it be for the reason of updating (such as new wallpaper, paint and furniture, etc. to accomodate current trends) or for the reason of squeezing more sets into the sound stages (in this case, the layout may have changed slightly).
Not all the changes over the years are visible in the following plans because we only have a selection of blueprints and director's floor plans available in our archives. For other adaptions of the major sets, please read the respective entries in our Behind the Scenes section. If you have a copy of other floor plans from the show, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.

A non-permanent set is a set built for a limited use during a season, oftentimes just for one episode. A non-permanent set may also be used for recurring purposes in various episodes, in which case it is usually folded away and put into storage after an episode is filmed, but reassembled again - not necessarily in the same place or on the same stage - at a later time when the need arises for using it again.
