    ok, so from the horizontal cutting line to to the bottom of the drawing (to the d bubble) that will be the south elevation. from that same cutting to bubble A will be the north elevation with out counting the vertical cutting linr. is that right?

    though what is up with the building structure
    i would expect to see a concrete cylinder under the foundation to which the I beams or 6*6 are supported by
    example

    5'O/s CLAB 5'R Bell? is what the site surveyor would be drawing on the flags
    five foot off set center line A-B
    five foot Radius Bell
    the bell is to have a larger surface area for support at the bottom to prevent movement of the piers

    il post Example drawing file--as soon as i fix my Acad, ... Acad Mechanical is messing around with it Capture2.jpg

    The screen shots that I have posted were dated 2009, requirements may have changed. Penn Foster had sent me a distorted hand out much like the screen shot as an example. If the student requests assistance from Penn Foster they will send something like the drawing that is in question.

    There is a discription of the footing and piers that the columns are on. We have to wait for the student to get to that section.

    As far as the learning goes we are not doing the drawing for the students, they still have to do them on there own. When trying to explain certian aspects of the drawing instruction, a picture helps the student to understand what is required.

    I also advise the students to visit various construction sites, and look for the details of the building the is under construction. They get a better idea of what they are drawing with this experience.

    Raudel, The peirs are wiewal in the 3 screen shots, just not detailed.

    Given the level of actual discernable detail the images provide I doubt that the student in this case is going to benefit as much as you think. Images are posted instead of drawing files to prevent the student from downloading them and submitting the work as his own. We're pretty careful that way.
