As the title of the topic says, I used to be a drafter back home in Spain but now I just moved to Victoria and I'm starting to learn new concepts and standards here.
I'm a bit lost with the standards measurements of basic staff like doors, windows,...
I've been trying to look if there is any website with the standard construction here in Australia but I get lost.
If anyone is kind enough to guide me to any website or book that I can find the information i'm required.
I bought two books from Allan Staines: Owner builder & renovator and House Building Manual and both of them are very useful however I couldn't find all the relevant information i'm required.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Cariasvar Welcome to the forum
Try window manufacturers like Stegbar or similar
Not Free Australian Standards
I also recommend you get a good 3D BIM AEC software package
and build up a library of 2d & 3D Construction/Engineering Details, Data,Notes,simulations,scripts ,etc,etc
OT, it took me 10 years+ to build up my library, still not complete. The focus is now broadening to the use of BIM, Data and Tools (On site) Most new books on BIM are outdated

Before I spend a fortune buying custom made blinds from overseas, does anyone know of any company anywhere in Australia that can make honeycomb/cellular blinds ?
