DETAILS are large-scale drawings of the construction assemblies and installation that were not clearly shown in the sections. These enlarged drawings show the Builder how the various parts of the structure are to be connected and placed. The construction of specific types of foundations, doors, windows, insulation, cornices, and so forth, is customarily shown in the detail drawings located within their appropriate main division of the construction drawings.
