Here's the update on plan for House #321, a classic American craftsman bungalow. New info showing up on these plans include: specific beam and truss specifications sized for live and dead loads (light engineering by me,) point loads indicated on the floor plans and cross sections (load imposed by a beam or truss which should be traceable to the foundation,) some limited plumbing information, HVAC location and limited info on air returns, which take up valuable space on the first floor, and very specific information on my interior panel system, which allows the wall paneling to be easily dis-assembled for service, updates, etc. Note: File updated Apr 27, 2012.
All drawings done by me with HB, H, and 2H pencils on tracing paper over graph paper entirely by hand. Elevations, cross sections, and floor plans drawn in scale 1/16"=one foot. Interior elevations drawn in scale 1/4"=one foot. Drawings are scanned, "color tweaked," cleaned up, put on backgrounds, and labeled with GIMP software. Perspective drawing of front done entirely by imagination, no computer models.
This plan will be updated with more info including roof plan, porch details, more interior elevations, the entire beam schedule, wall cross sections, a door and window schedule, plus more!!
This file is getting huge. I hope you all can read the fine print! If you have problems, just download it and view under magnification with your favorite viewer software.
Constructive critique is fine. Enjoy!!
