Architectural drawing
Students started out the year by learning how houses are built. They made hand drawings of plan details, showing how a footer and foundation connect or a sill plate attaches to a foundation wall. They drew different roof designs and even took a walking field trip to observe different roof styles in town.

A floor plan was designed by each student and a model was constructed of it.

Now students are using a software program called Chief Architect to make a 3-D model of their home.

Afterwards, students may design a home modeled after Frank Lloyd Wright.
