Detail Library – New Details March 2022

New Details

This month we have added more loft conversion details to the library. These details feature standing seam zinc dormer details. They range from window heads and sills, dormer connections, abutments and ridge connections 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:

  • standing seam zinc dormer detail window jamb
