Renovation Workflow: Zone Stamps for Renovated Rooms

This workflow is used to denote the renovation process in Zone Stamps.
Suppose you have a zone that represents a closet, and it is to be transformed into a bathroom.
In Existing Plan View (the starting point) and in Planned Status view (the ending point), place Zone Stamps accordingly:
The first Zone Stamp, in Existing Plan, has a status of “Existing” and is filter-specific. (It shows data for the closet.)
The final Zone Stamp, in Planned Status view, has a status of “Existing” and is filter-specific. (It shows data for the bathroom.)
There is no way to use a single Zone Stamp to express two renovation styles (demolish the closet, build a new bathroom), so in the interim New Construction view, you should use two text boxes instead of a Zone Stamp:
The first text box shows the closet’s data and has a status of “Demolish.”
The second text box, just below, shows the bathroom’s data and has a status of “New.”
This way, in this view only, the first text box, for the item to be demolished, will be displayed in yellow (the override style for “Demolish.”). Below it, the second text box, for the item to be built, will be displayed in red (the override style for “New”).
