wd framing is up

this week the wood framing and sheathing went up. now we can see the massing of both elements of the design side by side. the scale worked pretty good for its context.

the next two images are of the living space under the terrace

 Yesterday we meet with the plumbing crew sorting out how to run the vents though the framing, there were a couple of tricky spots right next to a tji.

Leigh St

Under construction
The site prep and foundation work were done a couple of weeks ago

The steel half of the structure is up, wd. framing will start this week.

Here's some images of the schematic design presented to the hdrc. The design is a conceptual extension of the two structures flanking the site, thus filling up the vacant site gap.

here's another image from the same angle

the steel structure we see, is the open covered terrace on the left side of the design.

New studio space

check my new digs

so when are you going to finish it?... osb is the finish   :}

y, the table is mdf

223 Delaware

Addition just passed HDRC, that's a flat roof throughout the new construction fyi... ; )

Here's a couple of sections thoughout the kitchen and fam areas, the addition steps down into the courtyard
and the flat roof planes are separated by clearstories.

The connection between the existing house and the new courtyard is helped by having
most of the vertical planes being transluscent and minimizing the tickness of the horizontal ones.
