Condominiums have become a popular choice, providing many of the benefits of home ownership while offering advantages associated with rental properties. The Shaw Place Condominiums are constructed of traditional building materials such as stone and brick as well as more energy efficient building materials such as exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS).
The south property line is composed of three sections with a bearing and linear measurement provided for each section.
Surveying instruments, such as laser levels and builder’s levels, are used to accurately position a building on a job site.
A transformer converts power at one voltage and current rating to a voltage and current rating that is usable by building inhabitants. The electrical service enters the building through the north wall.
“Dry laid” limestone rubble retaining walls are to be constructed along the north side of the driveway to hold back earth.
Door information, such as door size and type, is provided in a door schedule.
Dormers project from sloping roof surfaces to provide additional living area and allow light into the living area.
The Roof Plan shows dormers, terraces, and the mechanical area in the center of the roof.
Air conditioning condensers are mounted on pylons in the mechanical area on the rooftop.
Sheet A2.1 includes the Front Left, Front Right, and Right Side Elevations.
Balusters and posts are made of a high-density polymer that is cast around steel pipes.
The load-bearing members of a building are aligned in in-line framing.
The main entries feature a mahogany door with tempered beveled glass, a custom circletop art glass window with brass beading, and stone trim with a stone keystone projected 3/4″ from the surface.
Three decorative fixed windows, complete with stone arches and sills, are centered directly over the main entry doors.
Resilient furring channels are fastened to the bottoms of floor joists to reduce sound transmission between adjoining floors.
The stairway stringers are attached to a 2 × 4 anchored to the floor using 1/2″ expansion bolts.
