New Details

This month we have added a bumper set of details to the library. These details feature structural items, such as ridge/rafter connections, holding down straps, SIPs details, standard lintels and typical installations plus more!

They are all available as 2D CAD drawings and 3D SketchUp drawings. All details are now available in Revit format too! This forms part of the pro plan. The new details are available to all existing members, or can be purchased individually by non members.

I hope you find them useful.

The full set of details are listed below:

  • Typical rafter hanger detail
