The Construction Document phase is the most time intensive phase of the process. Great attention is spent developing and refining numerous details that will ultimately become the instruction manual for crafting each home. As thoughtful as the decisions are in the development of the design of each home, so too are the graphic presentations represented in the drawings. Brad views the construction documents not only as a tool for the contractor, but as historic documents important to the enduring record of each dwelling, adding, “I have observed a change in the attitudes of craftsmen in the field when they are presented with drawings that are thoughtfully and artistically prepared as if the same care that went into the drawings was being transferred to their craft.”In a manner employed by the classical architects of the past, Brad intentionally develops the drawings by hand rather then through the assistance of computer aided design programs. This practice requires thoughtfulness in each line drawn and maintains a consideration for the entire composition of the project as it develops.
