The Craft Studio project consist of converting student hand drawings into Revit (BIM) models that can later be included in a student plan book. I researched and developed the program that students must adhere to when converting their drawings. This concept will also be integrated into upcoming Craft Studio classes. The program sets a minimum criteria of what the homes must include to satisfy a typical middle income family and contain a set level of sustainability. The designs contain many features that home buyers are requesting, which will increase the value of the home while reducing utility costs. I then converted my Craft Studio project into four categories; suburban and urban designs in both basic models and deluxe versions— this same format will also be used by future Practicum students. The entire project took 99 hours to complete. 

Some of the drawings are on display at Andrews University.
