Architectural Drafting Services

2D traditional construction black line drawings and details used to get permits for construction, and for actual construction of the building.

Drawings include:

  • Zoning Analysis
  • Building Code Analysis
  • Review of proposed design for compliance with local building codes, energy codes, and zoning codes
  • Schedules for wall, doors, windows, hardware, finishes – including coordination with plans
  • Elevations – interior and exterior
  • Sections – building sections, and large scale detail sections
  • Details – walls (including UL fire-rated wall details),

I prefer to negotiate flat rate for drafting construction plans, with abreakdown for payment when completing milestones.

I use AutoCAD LT for construction drawings.
