Drafting Portfolio

This is a portfolio I put together of some of my drafting and design work from the past few years. All the drawings included are drawings that only I worked on. Nearly everything included are jobs where I did all of the field measuring myself. One of the things that I am most proud of is that when it came time to install, all these jobs fit the way they were intended.

I have removed most of the title blocks so as not to included customer's contact information.
