Detail Library – New Details November 2022

New Details

During November we have been exploring beam and block floors and brick soffit systems.

This latest set of details includes various beam and block details showing edge perpendicular to span, support to internal wall, staggering bearing, and change of direction.

Next we explore different brick faced soffit systems for door head details. These include timber bifold inward opening, and timber double slider doors.

There are some examples of the details below.
