Design Phase

Today marks the first day of the design phase of Crop Stop 2!  However, just because we are now working on Crop Stop 2 doesn't mean Crop Stop 1 is forgotten about.  Professor Pastre reminded us that in any design or construction job, it is typical to work on more than one project at a [...]

Don’t Tread on the Shed

Everyone! Wipe your feet!  The floors are undergoing the hose and squeegy treatment, so you know this means we are nearing the end.  Though there are more items on the list to be constructed and installed, it is finally getting to the point where we are taking care of details and "cleaning shop" around the [...]

Final Conceptual Review –Of course, it was the most relaxing weekend ever I had! As a group we smoothly finished our conceptual design of GAP SHED, but it is just at the mid-point for Studio V-design and built. There were full of VIPs in that small meeting room on last Friday , leaving us tons [...]

Crunch Time!!!

We met as a studio today in order to talk more about the roof. We had some helpful insight from Ray Huff about how many of our ideas can get complicated for us to build let alone some one with no design experience. Then we came to the realization that one roof is the best [...]

We Got This!

      Its crunch time! With the review less than 48hours away we are all super busy trying to get everything done and done well. Some issues have arose along this path we are taking but we are working forward. Since deciding on a floor plan everything else seemed to fall into place pretty [...]
