Small town shop quick analysis by Built4ever Small town shop quick analysis by Built4ever
A very quick "cocktail napkin" sketch of a very small medieval-inspired shop for a town center, suitable for a bakery, chocolate shop, butcher/fine meats, etc., with rented space upstairs or living quarters. Stairs use up a lot of space on these structures indeed. A shop to the right could share a wall. Pencil sketch, maybe 20 minutes of drawing and calculating. This helps to establish the reality of a small shop-type building and how different it is from modern structures. It's also a good example of how I quickly analyze a structure, determine square footage, chimney and staircase placement, heights of each floor, general proportions, main building materials, etc. From this point on I determine where I want to make changes, expand the size, how the interior framing structure will work, especially roof trusses, and more...

I have thought about this a few times. Rest of the world uses metric.

You need to talk to Dept. 56 and see about designing some of their buildings!!

I have a 4 hour seminar tomorrow at the library for CEU's and a one hour one on Thursday. Are you attending either one?

You think I should? You are attending or giving it? What's the topic? You think we should build one of these near the baseball stadium?

Attending both for professional Continuing Education Credit to maintain my Architects license. Tomorrows is on tile, Thursday's is on standing seam metal roofing at City Range. It's probably too late to sign up for tomorrows, but I'll try and send you info tomorrow morning before I go to the tile one. Tomorrow's starts at 9 am until 2 pm, Thursdays is noon to 1.

Is there a cost? The tile one, hmmm, dang, I've done quite a lot of tile work myself. I wonder what they're covering in a long seminar like that.

I've done a little tile work myself.
No cost. Just need to RSVP so they can have lunch for you.
Tile, grout, mastic and something else. It's a series of 1 hour seminars.
