Sections of Interior Spaces

When working with interior spaces, it may not be necessary to include a building section in its entirety. For example, if the extent of construction work is primarily limited to an interior remodel of an existing space, the section may not need to include all the structural details. Full assemblies such as the concrete floor thickness, granular fill, and below-ground footings do not really need to be

These drawings might show cabinetwork, wall wainscots, suspended ceilings, dropped soffits, doors, wall openings, and other interior components. Objects such as cabinetry that are cut through will be seen in a cross-sectional view, as illustrated in Figure 8-9. Sections through interior spaces often resemble a building section in their composition, but are more concerned with the interior aspects of the assembly and don't necessarily show floor thickness and other structural details (Figure 8-10). If objects or assemblies are too small to draw in detail, they are keyed with a symbol on this drawing and enlarged elsewhere, as illustrated in the enlarged corner of the cabinet in Figure 8-11. Interior section drawings are usually drawn at a scale of Vs" = l'-0", Vt" = l'-O", or even V2" = l'-O" (1:100, 1:50, or 1:20 metric).
