Nope, that was the e-book and call and that was it. I felt like a sucker. As for the drawings, I'm an architect. Drawing is what I do.

I disagree. I bought it and found it didn't answer many of the nuts-and-bolts questions I had as I began the design process. I think I paid several hundred dollars for it as well as "advice" from...

With the blessed cancellation of 'Honey Boo Boo', the collective IQ of several unnamed southern states just rose 5 points. ;)

Cancelling 'Duck Dynasty' would give 'em another 5 points. :p
