Leahey House back by jonorobo Leahey House back by jonorobo
This model was built for Brian MacKay-Lyons' tech class. The purpose was to build a structural model based on information we could find on one of his houses. So more of an interpretive model.
The Leahey House is in Pugwash, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Tech. class is awesome but sometimes ridiculous. In my 5th semester of it, do you have more than 1?

We have a tech class every semester. Tech class can be really cool but sometimes very dry. It all depends.
We have three semesters a year to make the program shorter.
Does Philadelphia University have three semesters a year?

No, we are fall/spring not trimesters like other schools. Our program is 5 years though.

Thanks for the comment. It was hard to keep all the wood in line to give the roof that smooth look.

Wow... That's some very nice framework! I'm studying this building for my studio project. My model ish crap in comparison... ._.

Hey how did you make the curve of the roof from wood sticks? I've been trying to do something similar but can't get it to stay together.

Hi,
Thanks for the comment.
For the curved roof beams I laminated a bunch of really thin wood strips together. First I drew out the curve I needed. Then I made a jig to fit the curve. Next I put my thin strips of wood together with glue, and while the glue was still wet I placed the strips in the jig to dry. The jig made the wood dry into the curve I wanted.
You could also steam one single piece of wood. Depending on how thick the wood was a kettle might work. Some people make their own steam box. Check this out: [link]
Either way, if desire a specific curve, a jig is best.
If you need more clarification, I'd be happy to do a little doodle for you showing how I did it. All I had was wood, glue and knife to do it.

Ah I see. I was thinking of doing that next. I bet that took forever. >.< Thank you for the explanation!
