  1. Hey Guys, Im a Uni Student studying ATD, was wonderings if anyone would be willing to have a look at at some drawings I've produced, Im sure they have lots of errors and I was hoping to minimise them, thanks for your time and any help advice, is much appreciated. The First Detail is a Curtain Wall Foundation Detail, and im getting very confused with Weather proof membrane's. The Second Is my attempt at a parapet detai between the Mansard floor and second floor I know I need to somehow include a gutter which Im also stuck on. If you have any queries feel free to ask, hopefully managed to upload to in the right forum Cheers
  2. Hi Guys, I have two questions. 1, all the images I have seen for warm flat roofs look like a sandwich with board, insulation, board. However im struggling to find any information on what to put around the outside and how I attach this to the flat roof, I could use OSB but then screw it into the top and bottom deck? Or do you run a batten on the inside of the sandwich, or not do anything. Im using 150mm insulation so was thinking of running a 150x40mm piece of timber along the edge of the roof to double up as something to attach the fascia etc too and enclose the roof and give me something to run the vapour barrier up around the insulation. 2, On one side of the flat roof it buts up against the second floor of my timber frame, however this is supposed to have woodfibre board insulation on the outside. Im not sure if I should run the roof upto the woodfibre, or install the roof under the woodfibre and bring it down on top, but then I worry about any water running onto it and keeping it damp. Hope that makes sense. Paul
  3. For anyone considering more than 4kW on their solar PV, I received this from my DNO today and it may be helpful. Note that their quoted maximum turnaround time for applications is 65 working days, i.e. around 3 months. To complete an application, and allow me to send the application to our Network Planner, we would require the following information; · Schematic – Please show all live phases, neutral, earth, lockable isolators, the name & size of inverters being used, a clear demarcation between the DNO and customer equipment and the generation itself. · Site Plan – Please provide a google earth image of the site, and mark the meter point · Completed G59 Application Please can you also provide your MPAN for the above application. We will retain your partial application for 10 days from todays date. If we receive no further correspondence from you by this date, we will cancel this application and delete your records. You are, of course, free to make a new application at any time. Microgen.pdf
  4. Aye...Most of the commentary, ideas and thoughts, in these blogs are based around traditional thinking, based on some, in my opinion, of many of the most interesting architects of the last 150 years. My constant references to Baillie Scott, Arthur Martin, and thoughts about Arts and Crafts houses, must highlight this. References and quotes from Pattern Language, and even Charles Moore, do hark back to tradition. However tradition is well and truly part of the works of Aalto, Scarpa Hans Scharoun and Erskine, to say nothing of the genius of Lloyd Wright. However, this approach does not discount the employment of all the ideas in contemporary homes, regardless of whether you want something to be 'at one' with the area, (repose) or to stand out or indeed to win a prize and be published. I make mention of this because I had been involved in the design of a 400m2 house, which the client wanted to be white, crisp, steam-ship like internally...although He was an Arts and Crafts fan. He wanted the place to be capable of winning an architectural competition.. He wanted me to 'do a Lutyens' The main criterion was in detailing...'if you can do without a line or ledge...so much the better' was his mantra. This therefore was a modernist approach (gained by years of study of the masters) shoe-horned into an Arts and Crafts or even Regency facade. Actually a more common approach generally than I thought! It means of course no cover strips, no skirtings, no architraves, just shadow gaps... oh and absolutely no pipe boxes.As seamless construction as possible, as if the interior had been hewn out of a solid. Whether you like this idea, beware, it will cost more, because you need the best builders who will be working to precise dimensions and many detail drawings, not be wittering on about starting the next job halfway through! The end result requires a certain precise type of living. If you are messy like me, forget it.
