Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1875 edition. Excerpt: ... door openings, as in our drawing; when the doors are inside ones, in partitions, &c., there should be no line drawn across them. In drawing windows always show a double line to represent the sash across the opening, as in this plan. We show the steps at the front door on our drawing, but not at the back door on plan; they can be seen on side elevation. We think the operation of making this drawing will be easily understood. Every line in it which is parallel with the edge of the drawing board toward us, is made by lining along Fig. 76.--Plan of First Story. the T square blade with the stock pressed against the left hand edge of the drawing board, and of course the lines square with them, are made with the stock of the T square against the nearest edge of the drawing board. In arranging the drawing table have the light come from the left hand; in that case you need not line in the shadow of the T square blade, as you will if light comes from the right. Having arranged the plan of our house we draw a ground line a little above it, and with the T square stock pressed to the lower edge by lining up along the blade we can transfer the positions of the doors, windows and other parts above the ground line, so as to form the elevation. The door is 8 feet high from the floor, and we make the tops of our windows correspond with it; and as they are 12 light windows with 10x16 glass, as the opening for that size glass is 5 ft. 10 in. high, we find it brings the sills 2 ft. 2 in. from the floor. In our drawing the top of the floor, shown by door sill is 3 ft. above the ground line, so we make 5 risers to get up there on the front steps; this makes each rise a little less than 7J in.
