Architectural Graphic Standards for Residential Construction (Ramsey/Sleeper Architectural Graphic Standards Series)

Customer Reviews:

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing

By Stephen Martinson - July 18, 2011

I have been an architect for many years, but most of my work has been on large scale commercial projects, so I approached this book as someone that knows about construction, but also as one wanting a refresher on residential construction.

The introductory notes to Architectural Graphic Standards for Residential Construction (AGS Res) set high expectations.

IRC references are ideal

By Nina Giglio - April 23, 2010

The code references that are included in the graphics make a great shortcut to being able to compare with my local code requirements. The contemporary issues is really a great guide for issues that are relevant to the residential designer and architect.
