I see your point concerning you don't have to do it that way. But I
don't really se any reason for not doing it that way? And if it makes
it simpler?

But I have no big objection for what you say. I myself have mapped a
lot of houses the way you stated before I saw some other presentation
Lulu-Ann made and thought "hadn't thought of that".

And isn't all taggig done according to diffrent peoples opinions? :)
(just a thought).

Best Regards Thod
