Finally...we have reached the 1:1 mock-up

With everything happening so rapidly on site, M House is requiring more attention to detail.

We have requested for a 1:1 mock-up of the roof ridge structure to be built on site, so we can study the bolt connection next week quite readily...unfortunately we had to do some paper mock-ups here in Sydney.....

ridge mock-up in plywood

this is where the roof structure rests over the concrete walls, the only place roof touches its supporting structure. There is no column in the 20m long house.

this is our version of the ridge....not quite the same is it...

we started making 1:5 component models, this is the same area as the mock-up where the roof structure rests over the wall

another component model to study the skylight relationship with the roof structure
