    Good Morning. It's a little after 7:00am Saturday morning.

    Did you make any further progress or did you take Friday night off to go out partying with the girls?

    I may not be able to check back in for a few hours as I have a project of my own to work on (painting!) today. See you later.

    FINALLY! I'm in!!! Would it be possible maybe to continue our discussion via email? Would that be a big inconvienance for you? I'm having a horrible time logging into CAD Tutor. It takes me 10-15 tries before I can log in every time

    I did take Friday off, but not to go out just to rest up. Today I've been running around like crazy doing must do chores, etc. I'm about to get back at the PF project in a bit. I've lost some momentum so I'm anxious to get back at it.

    My email address is if you're willing to work outside of this forum. I've emailed the administrator several times but I never get a reply back.

    Thanks,
    Robyn

    I want to attach a pic of my work so far. I understand how to attach the file to the forum, but I don't know how to capture the snap shot of my drawing in the first place :-(

    I've sent you an email. Now I suggest you remove your email address from post #42.

    While it may be easier for you to converse with me by email it detracts from the course of the conversation for others who may come in search of the same type of help. If I answer questions that don't appear to be asked here people may wonder if I'm talking to myself. LoL

    Screen shots can be captured in a couple of ways. Since I am using Windows 7 I have access to the "Snipping Tool" which I find to be very handy. What OS are you using?

    Ok, it seems to have been a browser problem like you thought. Firefox is working fine now!!!

    Ok, about to pack it in for the night. I've put in my sidewalks and curbs etc and everything is on the right layer. I'm caught up all the way to starting lot 7! YEAH!

    Re: sidewalk, buffer and parking strip.

    Where exactly did you place these? Having worked in a municipal civil engineering office for 8 years and a consulting engineering company with a major emphasis on street/highway design I can tell you that a sketch allegedly drawn up by a so-called P-F instructor and posted here was completely wrong. All of these should fall within the streetlines and not on the lots themselves. And the correct sequence, starting adjacent to the streetline is: 1' buffer, sidewalk then parking strip. FYI - even the name 'parking strip' is incorrect. It is commonly referred to as a "planting strip". This is the grassy area between the curb and sidewalk where many municipalities allow the homeowner to plant small trees, where hydrants are most often found and where, in some communities, you'll find mailboxes.

    In one of the other Oleson Village threads I posted a typical street cross-section that shows how this would look.

    I'm glad to hear you may have solved your problem about logging in.

    In regards to capturing an image might I suggest the program "SnagIt"?
    Get a one month trial version here: http://www.techsmith.com/snagit-gslp...FdKd4AodMwQADw

    Update: It's 11:35am Sunday morning. No activity observed. I'm going back to work.

    Oleson Village Lots 6 7 8.PNG
    Oleson Village - Lots 6, 7, & 8.

    One slight correction. I forget the 23.06 property line in a previously posted image for lot #6. I circled it in the above image.

    The R.O.W. between lot #7 and SW Oleson Road should be 40 feet.

    Oleson Village Sidewalk etc.jpg
    The proper location for the Buffer ( b ), Sidewalk ( s ) and Curb ( c ) are shown in this image. The streetline (SL symbol) is noted. The ROW is 50 feet. After deducting for the buffer, sidewalks and curbs on both sides the traveled (paved) portion of the street is 30 feet. This is how it should be shown.

    I'm starting to gain some confidence now because I caught that on my own on my drawing right away. That shows I'm learning as I go!

    This is a good shot above of the curb, etc. Mine isn't quite right. I will compare and make any corrections. This piece was very tricky. Just understanding the terminology was making it really hard. I got so confused as to what the right order was. I kept trying to picture in real life but I still messed it up I think.
