visio template building **side** view

Hi,
I've got to re-plan the networking inside our 7-storey building, and was hoping to do this with Visio.  We'll be running fibre to each floor, and have POE switches there to run VOIP and Data.

However, I was wondering if anyone has any good templates of a building side-view?

I've made my own birds-eye view plans, and checked all the usual sites for templates, but there don't seem to be any **side** views of buildings?  I could cook my own, but they'd probably be a bit rough at the edges...!

Anyone got any pointers, examples or tips?
Thanks, Danny

Hey Dan, are you using Visio 2010 or Visio 2013? I have an idea for using containers/lists for a very simple "Building with Floors" system.

Hi Visio_Guy, I'll be using 2010.  Any tips would be great - looks like I'm home-brewing!

built it myself.  Used a standard "room" box for each floor, but set it to the floor width and height instead.
