Friday in Studio

Today, we are 8 days into our Kickstarter fundraising month.  We currently have $1,580 raised! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. We appreciate the support and have some more good news to announce: we have been published  on a website called "A Daily Dose of Architecture" http://archidose.blogspot.com/2012/02/barnsworth-design-build.html

Currently, we are working on constructing the roof structure for the lantern. We have most of it built (below). It is just a mock-up, but it helps us understand the construction and the building techniques.

Here we are welding the columns to the corner plates for the lantern:

Accepting donations


We have put our project up on Kickstarter. We are looking for donations so that we can make this project a success. With the donations, we will be building our project, on site. Until we have the money, we can't lay the foundation. Thank you all.
