Tutor16-Project Manual

0 Comment
What it is:

The project manual is one part of the construction documents (The Docs). It is a pamphlet that includes architecturally-unique construction details and perspective views. These details show your contractor how to construct components unique to your project.

What you learn:
  • How to build unique details
  • Which manufacturer details/specs to reference
  • What inside and outside look like
  • What finishes you prefer
Exercises we use:
  • I email the design details to you
  • I use 8-1/2″ x 11″ drawings for easy duplication
  • We review these during the redline review and you ask questions
  • Involve your contractor so he/she can ask questions
