Ted Mosby's apartment from HIMYM

By nikneuk
The apartment of Ted mosby from the show HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

I have extended the walls with the doors to the bedrooms to fit these in the plan.

Some sets have changed throughout the different seasons and this floorplan is a mixture of various of them.

This is a hand drawed plan, in scale, coloured with colour pencils and with full details of furniture, fabric, timbers and complements...

The design is made according with the "real" apartment respecting the spaces, proportions, furniture and objets presents in the studio set.


If you want to buy an original drawing, especially handmade for you, contact me at or visit my ETSY store:…

This is very well-done. I don't think I've gotten far enough into the show to see the whole apartment, so I can't speak for the parts I don't remember seeing, but the parts I've seen look accurate.

Thank you very much.
I'm glad you like it.
I usually not add elements that are not seen in the show.
In other series (Friends, T&AHM, tc) at times has been seen the fourth wall, but not in HIMYM.
So my only "poetic license" has been adding a few decorative elements in that fourth wall.

Hi! This job is amazing! I know how hard this could be. I try someone like this with a church from a novell by Kim Harrison ( in 3D.

It would be awesome to have one of these floorplans fit to -my- actual apartment hanging on -my- wall =)

If you have patience, about 100$ and enough visual information I can do it...

I'll keep that in mind once my flat is finished. I really appreciate you even consider that. Thanks.

this is so accurate!! Amazing! :iconamazingplz:
I think by this image:…
It shows that looking from the living room, there is a bit of distance north-south wise from the balcony window to the doors of the bedrooms, which you did in your floor plan.
However in this image:…
It shows that in the bedroom when the door is opened, it is right against the exterior wall.
This probably means that the northern side of the exterior wall in your plan should be curved?

I use the first picture (or another very similar) to draw the center zone of the set in scale respecting the proportions of the windows and the space between them.
Obviously the secondary sets (bedrooms and bathroom) are build in a different soundstage.
I you see the space to the right of guest bedroom it's obvious that there is no enough space for the dresser you can see in the inside of the bedroom.
My idea with this project was to represent those sets as the real houses of the characters so, in this case, I had to extend this wall (and the opposite one) to fit a "real" bedroom.
When you try to make a coherent floorplan this kind of tricks and traps of the set designers are in evidence...
I am trying to make a 3d physical model for the apartment. I tried to fit your drawing on a piece of A3 paper but the proportion seems off. Would you care to give a dimension of a certain proportion to me? Thank you!

You can use this distance as reference and obtain, in proportion, the rest of measurements.

Cool, great job, i want the apartment of Barney Stinson :P . Sorry for my bad english.

Don't worry...
Soy vasco, hablo español, euskera y algo del francés que aprendí en el colegio.
Pero nunca he estudiado inglés...
Sobre lo que comentas del apartamento de Barney Stinson en "How I met your mother" he de decir que está entre mis futuros planes.
Hace unos meses tuve que parar la creación de nuevos dibujos porque el trabajo me absorbe completamente.
En cuanto tenga algo de tiempo retomaré mi lista de proyectos y entre los primeros está esa casa.
Un saludo
