Learn the basic skills needed to draw, detail, and design residential structures using standard construction practices involving wood, engineered materials, steel, concrete, and concrete block, as well as using "green" construction practices. CAD techniques based on the 2006 International Building Code are at the heart of this book that teaches methods to complete all the drawings needed to obtain a residential building permit. A host of real-world problems expose readers to a variety of drafting experiences and require them to go through the same thought processes that a professional CAD technician faces daily, including view layout, dimension placement, section placement, and more.

Leroy Crist, Southeastern CC, IA.: I would be interested in seriously reviewing it for adoption consideration. It looks superior to any of the current texts I have reviewed.
Philip Reed, Old Dominion University, VA.: I really like the material on green techniques and heavy emphasis on codes. I think this is something that is missing from AD&D. I also like the idea of a chapter on remodeling and renovations.
