Architecture: residential drafting and design provides the basic information necessary for planning various types of dwellings. The book is so organized that the content is presented in the logical order of use and is highly illustrated with the very latest products and building techniques.
Written to meet the educational needs of both beginning and advanced students, Drafting & Design features comprehensive instruction in both manual (traditional) drafting and computer-aided drafting (CAD). Step-by-step, detailed drafting procedures are presented throughout the text to illustrate the tools and techniques of both methods. For each drafting task presented, manual and CAD procedures are given in sequence to explain both approaches to drafting.
Residential Housing & Interiors acquaints students with planning, building, decorating, and landscaping a home, and working in the housing industry. An expanded teaching guide includes student handouts and transparencies to enliven your lessons.
