 Notes

It has been brought to my attention that the videos are not working properly for some. After checking into the problem, my suggestion is to update your Adobe Flash Player. You can find the download available here.


I have been asked where to find the paper for the project. I require unlined white paper. The ideal paper is called vellum paper and can be found at Office Max and Office Depot in the drafting section. It comes in packs of ten or fifty. I will allow posterboard, although it does not hide mistakes very well. If you are unable to afford to purchase paper, please come see me.


Please email me if you have any questions that are not answered here.

Excellent straight lines, door arcs, fixtures, and labelling.  The only drawback would be the thickness of the walls.

Example 4
This is 1 of 3.  Excellent job of showing detail, labelling correctly.  The writing may have cost a point or two but still clearly legible.

Example 8
One of the best examples that has been submitted over the years.  The writing and labelling is excellent.  Door arcs are clean.  This student went so far as to show the difference in the outer and inner walls.

No-no example #1
Labeling could be neater. Dimensions are found outside of each room instead of under the room name. Doors are too long and door arcs are incorrect. Windows are not the same size and are not straight. Walls appear to be sketched over to create thickness.

No-no Example #2
Labeling needs to be neater.  Door arcs not correct.  Can see areas where not erased completely. Fixtures drawn in by hand.
