Learn to draw house plans over the internet Welcome to House Plan Drafting, the Architectural Drafting Classroom on the Internet. If you're interested in learning to draw house plans, you've come to the right place. When you complete this course, you'll have the knowledge to draw the Floor Plan, Elevations, Foundation, Roof Plan, & Details for the "Ranch Style Home".

The Next Step, which is included, is "Drawing The Two Story Home", which contains more complex Sectional Details, Electrical, and Dimensions. The rancher and two story are the basis for most houses built in the United States, Canada, Australia, and England today.

My name is Tim Davis and this is what I do for a living.  From this web site, I'll lead you through an uncomplicated & well planned course in drawing house plans.

These courses are relevant to the U.S., and are similar to drawings in Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and most English speaking countries, although the plans are drawn using the Imperial system.

This is "NOT" a Tutorial or a Mini Course. House Plan Drafting Single and Two Story are full blown Courses that will teach you to create usable and submission ready house plans. Don't let the low tuition price fool you. This course took over 2 years to create!

How the Course Works

We'll be using the Internet as our chalkboard & textbook. In the Lesson Plans, you'll find a summary of what we'll be learning. These lessons are accessed from the protected directories of our site and you may take as much time as you wish to complete each one.

As an extra bonus, besides the bonus sections, symbols, and details, I've supplied complete house plan CAD files for you to study while you are taking the courses.

Also, it's no problem if you want to use a drafting board for the lessons! The only difference in using the drafting board instead of the CAD, is you will need to mail copies of your drawing to us so we may check your progress.
