ARCHITECTURAL DRAFTING AND DESIGN, 6E is an ideal book for all architectural drafters and CAD operators, whether beginning, intermediate, or advanced. An important feature of this best-seller is its step-by-step instructions for the design and layout of each type of drawing associated with a complete set of architectural plans, with projects that can be completed using either CAD or manual drawing methods. The basics of residential design, commercial drafting, basic materials used for construction, common construction methods, and drawings typically associated with commercial construction are all covered in this comprehensive book, which is written to meet the most recent editions of IRC and IBC. Readers will be introduced to the various types of projects that a designer or architect is likely to complete during the actual design process and will gain the knowledge needed to complete the drawings required by most municipalities to obtain a building permit for a single-family residence.

"I absolutely loved this book. Once I started reading this book, it was hard to put it down. It was much like a well loved novel. The proposed organization of this book was great. It is well written. The information in the charts and illustrations fit each topic. Many of the chapters were short in length which made it easier to offer one a chance to absorb the subject better…. There is enough information in this book that several syllabuses can be made up for several semesters."
"This book provides a very comprehensive outlook into residential architectural design and drafting. It discusses all aspects of architectural design."
"The information contained on all plan areas is great. My students learn very much from this text. It is very self explanatory, easy to read and comprehend. Illustrations shown throughout the text help students understand what is being taught."
