Hip Roof Model 3 Preview

Mon Jul 20, 2015 5:05 pm

Nearly finished the third regular plan hip model drawing, so wanted to share a preview. This one explores the segai-zukuri framing system, a personal favorite of mine. This will be the frist model where we build both decorative and structural eave portions.

Carpentry Porn - I love it!

Roof model storage will be a problem in the near future.

So far for Hip Roof Model 2, I have Keta stock dimensioned and cut to size. The stub posts are dimensioned, main post is glued up but not dimensioned and I have a plank that will provide rafters in due course. Hopefully all done by next weekend.


That's a really serious roof model!!

Once you transition to the full roof with decorative and structural parts, the volume of wood certainly climbs.

We could opt to do the full model or only a portion as a study project. Of course, that's a stretch off in the distance at this point.

The next group of models after hip #3 will involve polygons. Polygon hopper, then stool, then hip.
