Architecture: Residential Drafting and Design, an ADDA-approved publication, provides comprehensive instruction for preparing architectural working drawings using traditional and computer-based methods. The text also serves as a reference for design and construction principles and methods. Featuring numerous interesting photos of residences and architectural features, this up-to-date, introductory text provides instruction in three primary areas of residential architecture: architectural design, construction methods, and architectural drafting.
