Getting Jiggy With It

Well folks it crunch time and we are pumping out cut pieces as fast as we can paint them, and it looks like we will have all our pre cut pre drilled members ready to go for our trip up on friday morning (looks like we will all be construction workers for Halloween). The group [...]

Measured, Cut, Primer, Let’s paint

At this phase, studio in Charleston have already finished most main structure components cutting and their primer paint process. The remaining parts are ramp and stair frame. Everyone anticipated into at least one step of measure-cut-primer work flow. Everyone developed a set of their "paint clothes". Thinking about this Friday we will go to our site [...]

Construction Begins!

Rendering of Proposed CropSTOP Porch with Kitchen and Utility Modules Behind This post is coming to you remotely from onsite in Greenville. This weekend marks the start of our construction for the porch of the CropSTOP 2.0. This weekend we started with a blank canvas that is our site, and began to add to the [...]

Edges, Dimensions, and Spacing OH MY!

Bolt St. and Trotter St frame boundaries of the site. In the map bellow you can explore the area a bit and get [...]

What the Other Half Did

This past weekend was apparently prime travel time for a good chunk of the CACC. Both Studio U and Studio V professors were off conferencing in Nova Scotia. Two members of Studio V attended two different weddings. (Oh Fall, when love and allergies are in the air!) And three members of the studio, myself included, headed [...]

What the Deck!?

Good afternoon and happy Solid Orange Friday friends of Studio V! As we finish sewing up the last details of the ole Crop Stop mock-up, myself and the rest of the skeleton crew steering this operation out here on the front have found ourselves smack in the middle of a great lesson to be gleaned [...]

Bug Spray And Weeds

This weekend, Studio V began its first construction mock and building assembly to figure out design details and construction methods. We needed to test out all the kinks in the design and practice putting materials together in order to improve efficiency before we go to Greenville and build our final structure. For our mock assembly, [...]
