Written to meet the most recent editions of IRC and IBC, this exceptional, full-color fifth edition is designed for beginning, intermediate, and advanced architectural drafters and CAD operators alike. Architectural Drafting and Design, 5E features the basics of residential design through the various types of projects that a designer or architect would likely complete during the actual design process. Coverage begins with an introduction to architectural styles that have dominated the field over the last four centuries, followed by basic design components related to the site and structure. A hallmark of this best-seller is its step-by-step instructions for the design and layout of each type of drawing associated with a complete set of architectural plans, with projects that can be completed using either CAD or manual drawing methods. Readers will come away with the knowledge needed to complete each of the drawings required by most municipalities to obtain a building permit for a single-family residence. Comprehensive coverage also explores the field of commercial drafting, as well as basic materials used for construction, common construction methods, and drawings typically associated with commercial construction.

A prolific author and respected instructor, Mr. Alan Jefferis, has taught drafting technology at Clackamas Community College, an Authorized AutoCAD Training Center, for more than thirty-one years. Prior to that, Mr. Jefferis taught for four years at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. He brings a wealth of professional experience to his writing, including eight years of drafting for structural engineers and thirty years of residential designing. Mr. Jefferis currently owns Residential Designs. He is a former Autodesk Developer Network member and a former member of the A.I.B.D. Mr. Jefferis obtained his BS degree from San Diego State University in 1972. He has authored or co-authored numerous textbooks on architectural drafting and design and effectively working with AutoCAD.
