I’m working on a home design, which is designed to be built (if Lottto Max ever pays out) into a south-facing hillside.The basic construction would be 8" concrete base & walls - only the south-facing walls have windows, the other windows and roof would be covered with an earth berm, shrubs, goats etc. The “Needs-a-roof model” illustrates the overall concept,
N.B. neither of these models is an architectural drawing - I call them “Concept illustrations”., which, if the project proceeds will become “Client’s Brief to the Architect”.
I’m having trouble modelling the roof, which may be a thin concrete shell, though technical constraints may change the construction details (to e.g. corrugated steel). It is shaped as an arch, primarily for aesthetic reasons.
The “before_pp_roof” model is where the problem(s) appear to begin
When I pull the thin sliver of the roof shell in the North wall of the “Before_pp_roof” mode to the South wall, either of both of these occurs:
- The roof shell is a vacant space, but it should be a thin solid shell ( thought I was pulling the thin shell’s cross-section to create the volume).
- I can’t get the upper part of the North or South walls into the model - I can see right through the arch area upper part from N to S.
Comments, hints etc welcomed.
