                                    - 2 outside renderings from different corners of the house
                                    - 1 site plan showing all of the above

                                    - dimensioned floor plan
                                    -2 elevations, either North and East or South and West- these can be on the same title block

    Please work on and complete your house design:

    Do not forget that I will also be collecting the

    HEAT LOSS calculation for your house design.

     

    Things to remember.  All bedrooms need a closet
                                    You need a closet at the front door
                                    You must have 2 areas of egress/ingress (ways to get in and out of the house)
                                    All bedrooms must have at least 1 window - normal size
                                    1 bathroom has a tub/shower and 1 can have only a shower
                                    Stairs to go downstairs- include electrical box, water heater and furnace in the basement
                                    You may also include the washer/dryer in the basement as well
                                    Stove and dryer use a 240 outlet or the "range" outlet
                                    All rooms should be furnished
                                    You will include ceilings and lighting
                                    You need a GFI in the kitche, bathroom and outside both in front and back
                                    You may build an outside deck using the floor tool and put on railings
                                    When you are completely done make certain that you save your house as H4H to the Property

    What Title Blocks are to be completed:  
                                  From the Site file with the house installed, driveway made, walkway to the front door and landscaping completed
                                    - 2 outside renderings from different corners of the house

    Please use your time wisely and effectively.  I expect tha most of this can be completed in the time allotted.

    If you get stuck e-mail me with a clear explanation of what the problem is and I will respond to you as soon as I can.

    If you finish everything - please take one of the packet tutorials to make the Gropius House ( this might take 1-2 classes)

    We often take for granted that a light will illuminate when we flip a switch
    or that there will be an electrical outlet in a convenient location when
    we want to use a hair dryer. The fact that you do not notice the design
    of the lighting and electrical system when you are in a building indicates
    that the designer has done a good job anticipating the needs of the occupants.
    The electrical system must be designed and constructed according to the
    applicable building codes and regulations, but it should also be designed
    with the end user in mind.

    1. Take notes on Electrical Systems

    2. Review common Electrical Symbols  Common Electrical Symbols

    3. Review Electrical Codes  Residential Electrical Codes

    4. Apply to your H4H house:  Duplicate floor plan
                                               Rename it Electricla Plam
                                               Using Visibility Graphic Overide- Hide furniture and entourage

    Quiz on Monday on HEAT LOSS - see google classroom.

    Do Now:  How did you do on the homework?  Questions?  Please turn it in.

    Activity:  Continue on the H4H house - make your stairs- uncertain as to 
                  where to put them- lets talk and take a look at your floor plan.

                  Don't forget you can add extra square footage to make up for
                           the square footage that the stairs take up.

                 Kahoot at the end of the block plus one more heat loss homework.
