Tasks Performed

  • Monday I worked just for a few hours virtually (Labor Day) organizing files and wrapping up all other projects to start my major project of the semester, the Cumbaa House 
  • Tuesday I spent the day creating tile drawings for every room in this house that was going to have tile installed. I created updated floor plans, elevations, and documents highlighting the tile sizes, upkeep and any special installation requirements 
  • Wednesday I finished these documents for the Cumbaa tile and updated the floor plans to include the new drawings
  • Thursday we drove to the site to do a walkthrough of the house with the owners, general contractors, and tile installer. I took the lead and was able to get first hand experience on what happens during a walk through. I took notes on any changes needed to be made and then went back to the office to edit those changes. I will have the edits completed and sent to the clients and tile manufacturer for the final order next week   

Work Accomplished (AXP Hours Earned) 

I am not sure how to log my AXP hours yet I need to discuss this with Ashley. 


Lessons Learned 

This week I was mainly focused on drafting. I was able to focus on the Cumbaa Residence which I will be working on for the remainder of my internship. I spent a lot of time drafting elevations and finalizing the tile. Thursday I learned so much. I was able to do my first site visit and it was very engaging and a fun experience. I was able to see what the construction environment is actually like and what happens during a tile walkthrough. I saw all of the little changes that happen on site as everything isn’t always perfect. It was such a great experience and I can’t wait to go back to the site.
