Today I worked on adjusting the floor plans for 109 Rutledge. I sat down with my mentor to go over the proposed plans that I drew and compared them to the existing structure. We noticed a few key corners or walls that were suggested to remove and we had to work them back in for structural reasons.

Thursday (3/17/22):

I attended a client meeting for 109 Rutledge to go over the proposed floor plans. After the meeting I began working on 11.5 St. Philip Street wall sections. As I began detailing things out, we soon realized that some details like corners or wall types needed to be flushed out more.
