Solar Decathlon Frame Design
The external formal qualities were decided upon to be expressed through a shade device / structure that would be attached to the home and move with the home. The design used for mock-up deals with an issue of overlapping structures that result in a significant cantilever. In order to resolve this angular cross bracing and welding key components is necessary.
Fabrication for the most part was rather straight forward. Took Leodan Castillo and myself about a week to construct the house framing and assembling the fence post structure.
