Last Post for a While




A New Year's Resolution...haul back on the blogging and do something more useful.


Probably something to do with not a lot of feedback.


This post is about a porch roof I designed. My wife requested a cover over our front door so you don't have to get wet when it rains...it rains lots in Auckland. My original idea was a repeat of the roof nearby,ie tiles, rafters etc.


Then I saw one a friend had done: Just a sheet of glass held up by steel brackets.


Just to be competitive I designed a similar one, but this one used stainless steel. Originally, I chose 40 x 5 flat bars as the material, but the look was not all that "architectural", so I redesigned it to use a profile cut shape as the support part.
