In this video number 5 for the series, I review how to read floor plans and the information found on a residential basement plan for the Doncaster model discussed in previous videos (sink links below and review my playlists on my channel). Topics include symbols, hatchings, section details, line types, beam identification, joist runs and more.

I reference my textbook Understanding Construction Drawings for Housing and Small Buildings by Tom Stephenson, It can be purchased on Amazon.
