Additional Book Details

ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING AND DESIGN, 6E is the classic text for all architectural drafters and CAD operators, whether beginning, intermediate, or advanced. This full-color, comprehensive edition provides the basics of residential design, using various types of projects that a designer or architect is likely to complete during the actual design process and is written to meet the most recent editions of IRC and IBC. This book begins with information on architectural styles that have dominated the field over the last four centuries, followed by basic design components related to the site and structure. Commercial drafting, basic materials used for construction, common construction methods and drawings typically associated with commercial construction are all covered. An important feature of this best-seller is its step-by-step instructions for the design and layout of each type of drawing associated with a complete set of architectural plans, with projects that can be completed using either CAD or manual drawing methods. Readers will gain the knowledge needed to complete the drawings required by most municipalities to obtain a building permit for a single-family residence.
