    I also had problems with the discreption.

    Have you read the project book completly? There is additional information givin later in the booklet.

    I broke the instructions into steps. As you complete each step on a sketch check it off on the booklet.

    The placement of the corner pillers determines the slab size.

    First sketch the footing. Then place the footing key in the correct position. I used a 2"x4" rectangle centered at the top of the footing. The key will protrude into the footing.

    Draw the piller. Remember that there are 2 different shapes. One for the corner positions the other applies to the rest of the pillers.

    Draw the drain as a 4" circle, center the drain 5" above the footing and to the left of the piller. This will give you the 3" clearance requirement.

    When you draw them in the program make blocks from the pillers and footing's then insert the blocks. Don't forget the drain on the east side of the elevation drawing.

    hey thanks for the info car5858, but i'am still confused. so in the south elevation plate 2 you draw everything it says all the details about the siding , the steel plate, and so on. so use the foundatin plan drawing and just keep adding to it. also the details sections i don't get what they want. are these drawings just simple basic am i looking at this do deep. i tryed breaking it down but iam have a tough time. thanks

    Default penn foster structrual drawing

    i'am not asking for someone to give me there drawings of this project, but i dont have a degree, just learning auto cad at work(the mining business not archeticture) so the penn foster booklet is just confusing to me. i dont understand there wording it makes no sense, so other than asking for some sketches of something i'am at a loss. sorry if a hurt someones feelings.

    Some times it helps to step away from the drawing for a couple of hrs.

    so in the south elevation plate 2 you draw everything it says all the details about the siding , the steel plate, and so on.
    Yes they are required elements of drawing.

    so use the foundatin plan drawing and just keep adding to it.
    I used the foundation drawing to setup plate 2. Remember to save as Plate 2. This will help you locate the footings columns quickly. After you have drawn the finish elevation line draw the other referance lines at the distance stated in tthe instructions.

    also the details sections i don't get what they want. are these drawings just simple basic am i looking at this do deep.
    The details are enlarged section's of the attachment of the girders and poured in place concrete.


    i tryed breaking it down but iam have a tough time. thanks
    I also had a hard time with this project. Called the school many times with questions. I also started the drawings over a few times.
    The drawings are designed to get you to use the info that was presented in the Textbook. You will do fine, after you get confidance in what your doing. I found that by questioning everything and reading over the instructions many times helped me.
