Construction Detail Sketches

On most building projects, once the full-size architectural drawings (whether 34"x22" or some other size) have been issued and approved for permit, the primary means of issuing drawing revisions is in the form of simple 8.5"x11" sketches. One of the reasons for this is that it makes it easy for anyone out in the field to be able to print and make use of the sketches with a standard home office printer. Below are a couple such sketches I produced recently detailing the construction of the second floor reading nook and the surrounding paneling. The sketch is a mixture of plans, elevations, sections and a 3D-axon view in an effort to tell the complete story of how I envision this element being constructed.
