The working drawings for a building or construction project are the plans that specify the design details of a project.

Traditionally, working drawings were always printed onto paper, generally on large sheets that were rolled up to take out to the jobsite

But these days, drawings and specifications are sometimes provided on a CD, so they can be viewed on a computer screen and printed off when necessary.

In this section, we'll examine the working drawings you're likely to come across as a kitchen and bathroom cabinetmaker, and the different parts that make up a set of building plans.
