AIA – CRAN Videos

For many, constructing a new home or substantially renovating an existing one is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so naturally the process is not always clear. Here are five videos from CRAN, Custom Residential Architect’s Network. CRAN is a Knowledge Community of the AIA (American Institute of Architects) that develops information to benefit architects and their clients alike. Each of CRAN’s videos is relatively short, very informative and from a trusted source.
