Timber Framed Townhouse

During this course we designed a simple townhouse to New Zealand Standard 3604 (Timber Framed Buildings). We were given a standard 10x4.5m section for our townhouse, then were free to design a townhouse up to 7m tall. Flashing to neighbouring models was also considered, as for the final presentation all models were assembled together to create a block of townhouses.

In pairs we first built a 1:200 scale model, then produced a set of construction drawings. SARC 221 - Building Materials and Construction
