Well folks, today is our last Designer of the Month post for the month of August. This month Cheri will reveal the final outcome as she wraps up talking about the design process through a St. Croix home.
C: Design Process Phase III: Implementation
Usually the implementation phase goes without a hitch. In this project, however, there was a bump in the road: the main beam had no secondary support; that is, the span was too long for the size of the beam. After many discussions with a structural engineer, a post was in order but where to put it? During design development, we had considered a bar. Adding one to hide the support was a good option but we needed to think if the bar should be perpendicular or parallel to the island.
Design Process Phase IV: Completion
Bringing it all together, of course, is the best part of the design process. All the hard work and the countless hours paid off.
I’m excited to be the newest designer at Castle. With my 20+ years of design and their 35+ years of business, I know we’re a good fit. I look forward to going through the design process with you. If it’s a large project or a small one, the process remains constant.
Next month is going to be a very exciting month for Castle, stay tuned as we reveal a huge event on Sunday September 1!
In the meantime if you have a question for our designers, project managers or field guys, email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will post the answers on Facebook on Tuesdays!!
