Here's a page from one of my sets of Construction
BluePrints and the house that was built from them.

what's the sheet size of that blueprint? it looks like 18x24, 20x24 or something .. a much 'squarer' proportion than i'm used to.

real drawing is lost on most of today's youth and i think the computer takes away a lot of the thinking about how a building goes together (especially when drawing details).
