From the Back Cover


Interior designers approach creating interiors differently from architects, with a deeper sensitivity to the relationship between the structural spaces, finishes, furniture, lighting, and other details that truly finish the space for people. In Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors, authors Rosemary Kilmer and W. Otie Kilmer explore sketching and drafting from the interior designer’s specialized perspective to provide a real-world resource for construction drawing preparation.

This updated third edition includes expanded coverage of BIM, and new discussions on concept development and structural systems. The highly visual presentation is enriched by new drawings, and access to digital learning materials that help increase understanding and decrease study time.

  • Begin with the basics of drafting for interior design, including standards, symbols, conventions, and projections
  • Walk through design analysis, synthesis, and implementation to turn concepts into construction
  • Find extensive guidance on preparing contract documents such as demolition plans, elevations, sections, furnishings, lighting, and more
  • Understand the scale, drafting, designation, and dimensioning behind mechanical and plumbing plans, with systematic exploration of structural systems
