The sectional elevation is on the scale 8ft to 1" and includes measurements, there are also rough pencil sketches above the roof line. The scale is wrongly given as 10ft to 1" but corrected in pencil and given correctly on the scale bar. The exact locations of the section and the letters indicating its position are not clearly shown in any of the plans in the job, although certain of them include individual letters or section lines with different letters.

The canteen doorway is shown in elevation and section and there is a plan of one of the door stops, all are at the scale of 1" to 1ft. There are some measurements and indications of materials to be used, but not comprehensively. Above the sectional elevation through the building are five sketches showing details of the roof timbers and the roof and room below giving detailed measurements for various sections. There is also a note saying "27 ceiling joists to be renewed" suggesting the sketches may post date the building. The plan was signed by three officers between 10th November 1867 and 14th March 1868. It is number seven of the original job and is a finer lined and shaded copy of MP/DOV0165.
