More on the Terrace Design

posted; 07/28/06

This is another drawing of the same angle with different materials. I’m going to call this a warm-up drawing for the day. I did change the paver material color and lower how the plants would look.

Sectional Drawing: Not quite a true sectional because I added a few things that would not be on the section line I cut through the plan view. It does show the homeowner a good look at the relationship between the porch/steps/ and patio. A real quick drawing with the number one intention of showing how the steps would work out.

This was not taken off a photograph. Sectionals are good to show transition, change of elevation, and spacing. For me personally it is always better to show in some type of scale so these relationships show correctly.
