Construction: The assignment for today is to determine how many horizontal framing members you will need to complete the framing for the seat portion of the bench you are building in class. Based on the length of bench you are building i.e. 10' 1/4" or 9' 5 3/4". If you space the horizontal framing members every 16 inches on center. How many horizontal members will you need. Draw a sketch and mark the horizontals every 16 inches. This will determine how many you will need. Also, determine the length of the horizontals. The bench needs to be 38 inches deep. Remember, the 2x4 is actually 1 1/2" by 3 1/2". Write this down on paper and turn in the next time we meet in class.
Design: Go to Houzz website, houzz.com and select at least 3 different outdoor features. Take screen shots of each of the ideas. These can be used as inspiration in your architectural plans. When you get to the houzz website, type outdoor features in the search bar. Turn in the screen shots the next time we meet in class.
