My plans for the weekend

WE try and get the architecture students in the office to get something built during their training, some do while others are not so fortunate. I try to create opportunities for them to get their hands dirty with actual construction where possible - Habitat for Humanity was one such avenue for this type of 'work experience'. Another avenue involves designing simple extensions for my friends and then obtaining quotations, coordinating the sub-contractors and then building parts of it.

This recent one is a sun-room for the Pangs; the deck was built by the students over one weekend and they were 'paid' with food and the experience of getting their design built.

A week later, the glazier came and did his bit after which the sun-room is complete
