On this page you can select free tutorials to view for either using AutoCAD software or How to Design and Draft your own home. The architectural drafting tutorials cover a lot of basic requirements needed to draw floor plan to submit for planning or a building permit in Australia. The building regulations used are based on the Victorian Building Regulations. Reference to the Building Code of Australia BCA (now named the National Construction Code NCC) covers all of Australia generally, however some statesand territories have variations to the codes to suit that particular location. The information is provided as a guide only and not as professional advice.

The resources on this page are useful for people wanting to design and build their own home, and I have also added a section for students studying architecture or building design and construction at tafe. It is a useful resource for referencing information often needed in the courses to complete assignments.
