Long Weekend = First Night in Studio

We may have not had school for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but that doesn’t mean we weren’t hard at work.  After a week and a half of getting familiar with and working on Crop Stop 1 on John’s Island, it came time to familiarize ourselves with Crop Stop 2 from Greenville.  This weekend, the kitchen portion of Crop Stop 2 is being transported to Charleston to be built here in order for us to continue working on it, but before it gets here we need to know we are working with.  It was impossible not to spend a little time enjoying the beautiful weather, but we also dedicated this three day weekend to understanding the AutoCAD and Rhino files of Crop Stop 2.  It gave us a change of scenery from working on Crop Stop 1, which also meant our first night in actual studio. Deciphering the information in the files is actually harder than one may think.  Crop Stop 2 utilizes a different framing system than that of Crop Stop 1, not to mention we are coming into this project in the middle of the process.  Thank goodness last semester’s studio was very thorough in the files and left us a lot of information to work with… and with that being said, there is still a lot of information to sort through, so I’m going to get back to it.
