Marc-The purpose of the grid is to communicate. It really doesn't matter which way its done as long as it is consistent within the set of drawings and/or your company standards. You want a grid line on any line of vertical elements you may need to refer to. It is simply a communication device.As my dad used to say " I don't care what they call me, as long as they call me for dinner."Bill Cain, S.E.

What is the standard convention for laying out grids on a plan? i.e. do the numbers go top to bottom and letters left to right or vice versa? I have looked in the Architectural Graphic Standards book by Ramsey but could not find a reference and it appears that various engineers and architects do it both ways.
