Our working drawings include the following..
We use AutoCAD to produce our working drawings. This allows us to be 100% accurate on our dimensions as well as coordinate all drawings with the highest level of precision. Below are examples of what comes in each working drawing set...
Floor Plans -
For each level we include... a 1/4"=1'-0" scale floor plan indicating frame walls and masonry with dimensions, notes, door and window sizes, room names and floor finishes, cabinet, shelving, fixture locations and notes, ceiling conditions, electrical/lighting fixtures and switches.
Exterior Elevations -
We include... Front Elevation at 1/4"=1'-0", side and rear elevations at 1/8"=1'-0", plate heights, roof overhangs, material/surface notes, window heights, roof pitches, material hatching for clarity, floor to floor dimensions and any other detail we feel is necessary to explain the construction.
Cabinet elevations at 3/8"=1'-0", showing cabinets, appliance locations, plumbing fixtures, shelving, counter/backsplash surface, cabinet material and finish, niche details and any other special situation that cannot be understood from the plan view. Building Sections are included only when there is no other way to indicate the spatial characteristics of the home. This information is quite often indicated well enough on the elevations and plans.
Foundation Plans -
We offer a choice of three types of foundations, full basement, crawlspace, and slab foundations. Each comes fully dimensioned, and noted indicating wall composition and thickness, construction detail references to our detail page, beam, pier and column locations and sizes, stair locations for basements, reinforcing steel sizes and step downs in monolithic slabs and ventilation grilles for crawlspaces.
Framing Plans -
For each level we include... a 1/8"=1'-0" scale plan indicating rafter, ceiling and floor joists locations, sizes and spacing as well as lumber grade specified, additional bracing and blocking.
For each foundation type we include... 3/4"=1'-0" scale details indicating material composition, size and critical dimensions for construction of the primary foundation.
