Examples of Bow Roof Architecture Built Recently
OK folks, so as I do some transitioning and re-training, while I sell my house, I'm watching a lot of construction videos about many different topics and methods of construction. Many of these are world-wide sources. This morning I was checking out videos of bow roof constructions here in U.S. and elsewhere. I linked the "Jungle Outpost" sketch I posted a few years ago for reference. This is an example of "over-the-top" very complex bow-roof architecture. I was surprised to see that some enterprising individuals have built some simple bow-roof sheds, greenhouses, and small homes using either curved steel frame members OR laminated wood frames. Skin can be wood, metal, clear plastic, or other. It certainly proves the concept that small structures can be built with this roof type! The links to construction videos are posted below the sketch:
House 326 Version 3 Plan Available!
Hey folks, I'm making available a plan sheet for House 326. This is for "Version 3," a plan I developed for a client a few years ago based on the original House 326 Storybook Cottage concept. It keeps the original courtyard concept intact, with the inner courtyard developed as a small dog sanctuary with doggie doors built into one or two exterior doors. Square footage was very compact. Unusual arrangement, including screen porch location was to take advantage of specific mountain views. Exterior planned as either stucco OR hardiboard siding. I get a lot of requests for plans for House 326! Let's try this out. Main plan sheet at 24"x 36" has all the main design drawings with main dimensions, as well as brief description of construction methods. If printed out, plans and elevations are at scale 1/8" = one foot. There's also a second bonus sheet with a nice front elevation sketch showing the hardiboard option, and an interior wall/cross section. This sheet good for 8"x11" print out.
Sketchup animations of 3D models on Youtube
House 321 Side Garage, video animation, 1:15 mini-movie features first floor, sec floor, roof, move to front, then sweep around entire exterior. I'm adding music now to these videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBaRn6NNsOU This is my main Youtube page now with ten videos uploaded, most 20-40 seconds, a few longer, all house designs and a few neighborhoods. They're all sketchup animations. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiF2wb2eqHMsAL7vSEHnbOQ?view_as=subscriber
