Re: Frame THIS!


Looks almost identical to something I designed and built in 1990, minus the third level.

Re: Frame THIS!


Hi MALCO, between dealing with three young kids, being sick as and trying to get the work out I haven't had much time to post. I just finished the 3D model for this biotch (the model not the HO). Lots of design changes of course but I think she is finally happy with outcome.

I have never framed any thing this big before and I am not going to do this one, I just thought it lookedlike it was a pretty intimidating project but I guess not for quite few of the guys here on CT.

The model impresses me. I couldn't do that. But the framing isn't difficult. Nice job on the model.

Re: Frame THIS!


Hey Andy!!!

I was talking to Bill but I do extend the question to you as well.

Why are you not taking this one on????

If you can frame the first floor, the second floor falls right in to place. The third is a bit different.

But what do I know!!! I ain't no Framer.

one step at a time

But one question,
What's holding that second floor deck up over that bay/turret to the far left?

Ask the engineer, I just make models and draw lines as I am paid to.

Is that a wrap-around cantilevered deck or the roof plan for the first floor turret room?

Looking at the floor framing plan, it looks like the deck joists are cantilevered over the 1st floor turret wall. Can't tell from that angle what the cantilevered ratio is...

On the other hand, the deck joists show up on the roof framing break-out pic so maybe they're angled rafters, not cantilevered deck joists...

hmmm....

Re: Frame THIS!


It is the roof plan for the turret room. This was just the framing generated by the program, Chief Architect without any bearing points, beams or girders planned out yet.

I built the model for the HO to be able to see the house in 3D with some, not all, materials with a few options for colors on the exterior and some interior colors and materials also. Her Architect doesn't do 3Dstuff at all. I will be working with her interior decorator on the majority of interior colors and materials and some design for fireplaces, soffits, moldings and floor coverings. It's good money and I don't have to get dirty.

I will be looking for a service to print the model to a 3D printer when we have some things ironed out as to scale and style, mostly architectural elements to the front door and 1st floor interior.

I just thought it would be cool to see how this would look as just framing.

Andy.

Re: Frame THIS!


as they say back in Massachusetts, wicked cool.

I echo the question about the offset bay on the left hand side, but as you noted bearing isn't shown I'll let it go. How about the house CT built?we all roll down, work our magic, and the HO gets the most. experienced. team. ever.


I dunno, the coffee timer didn't kick on , so I'm waiting..
