Introduction to Advanced Framing Construction for Small Structures

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Repeats every week until Sat Oct 26 2013 .
Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 10:15 - 12:00
Saturday, October 26, 2013 - 10:15 - 12:00
This workshop provides an introduction & demonstration of the "advanced framing" method for building sheds, tiny houses and other small structures.

In this workshop, we will be meeting to discuss and demonstrate the construction of a small shed using advanced framing method, also known as optimal value engineering (OVE). This is a construction method that can improve energy effiiciency without compromsing quality or durability. We will discuss various aspects of the framing, includings its use of 24" on center stud spacing, two stud corners, single top plates, sheathing options, and their effects on construction costs, waste, and durability of the structure. 

We will also discuss topics unrelated to advanced framing, such as how to attach siding, how to treat or create water and rot-resistance siding thru oils and a japanese method of charring wood called shou sugi ban ("burning cypress wood").

While covering the how-to of this project, we will present and discuss some differences between conventional building and traditional building methods.

This workshop is intended for those unfamiliar with building processes. It is my hope that participants will go away from the class with the knowledge and confidence to take obtain lumber or other locally-available building materials and have a small knowledge base from which to begin their journey to building their own small structures (using traditional framing or others).

For readings and photographs of the build: http://excoframing.wordpress.com/

Lumber for this class was purchased from Shaw-Stewart Lumber, 645 Johnson St NE, Mpls, 55413, 612.378.1520. 

Facilitator's experience: 
I have built a few sheds using both traditional and advanced framing, and have spent much time around many kinds of framing methods in the territories known as Japan and the U.S. I have also designed many alternative-building structures but that knowledge will not be drawn upon for the purpose of this class as we will be talking primarily about how to frame a structure.

Backyard Kimchi Workshop

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Monday, August 19, 2013 - 18:30 - 19:30
We be making some sour goodness for our bellies, korean style.

My name is Ryan, and if you want to make some kimchi with me, come to my backyard. You bring a jar, I'll acquire the ingredients. We can look at my pretty backyard garden and discuss permaculture or fermentation or both while the veggies soften. Then we'll pack the jars with all the goodness, yum yum yum, and in a few days to a week, we'll have kimchi.

Sound good?

Just come roll by my house on the evening of August 19th, and if all goes well, we'll make us enough kimchi to nourish a horse.

peace and love,

ryan

Facilitator's experience: 
I have fermented beer, mead, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, ginger beer, and sourdough bread, which were all great, and then some tempeh which was pretty bad :)
