    I agree with you remark, i sounded like my wife describing things too.
    i have never seen that part of a building before. thank you guys.
    I finished the fundation plan. now am going to start the south elevation. i will ask if i have more question. i hope is ok with you guys.
    why did the booklet ask me to draw the border and title box in inches (11"x17") but i placed the i beams 18' apart. is the school tricking me or this is what it is in the real drafting world?

    The school could be either 1) expecting you to create a scaled drawing much like one would on the drafting board or 2) expecting you to use a paper space layout for your title block and window and create a viewport to see the objects you created back in model space. It's either/or so read your instructions it should tell you what is expected of you.

    No tricks, the columns really are 18 feet apart in model space, and the paper really is 11"x17" in paperspace. If you plot at a scale of 1/4" = 1'-0" the columns are still 18' feet apart, but your model is scaled down by a factor of 48, so they'll only measure 4 1/2" apart on the paper.

    Top view and plan view are one in the same.

    Front and side elevations can also be referred to by compass direction. Do you have any idea which way is North? If you do then always keep this in mind: When YOU are facing North, EAST will always be to your right. You were never in the Cub Scouts?

    Without a North arrow it would be difficult to say which elevation you are looking at. There was no indication in your project handout as to which direction North might lie in? Is it left up to the student? What is the name of the drawing you are currently working on?

    When you said the north i was thinking about some tipe of view. yes the north arrow indicates the long side of the building(which will be at the top of the sheet) as the north elevation. i angled the north arrow at N12d14'0"e. i went back to the foundation plan part of the project and that's what it says. so if the long side of the building is the side with the five w12x152. is that the view i have to show?

    Refer to post 17, this is what you should see. The horz. section line with the indicators tells you what direction you are looking. So If you are looking at the building you would see an elevation view of the bottom line on the image in post 17. This is called the South Elevation. By using copy and paste, you can quickly lay out this elevation in the new drawing.
