Keep reading below the images to examine how it differs from the original Steel Case House.. Built as a one-of-a-kind showpiece in 1956 to attract buyers to Eichler's new San Mateo subdivision, the X-100 was the subject of considerable media attention during the era, and reportedly hosted 150,000 visitors during its grand opening. Structure: Steel-frame, post-and-beam house whose cantilever over a steep hillside is supported by a reinforced concrete structure buried in the hillside. Thorne designed this house for an executive of Bethlehem Steel, which was keen to promote steel in residential construction. True to his Northern California roots, however, the house has a woodsy feeling, thanks to its exterior redwood paneling, and wooden floors and deck.
Thorne and client Frank Norton did some of the work themselves, including installation of the steel frame. Structure: Steel frame in-filled with ceramic-coated brick on the outside and walnut panels and plaster inside.
West Seattle Residence - by Lawrence Architects - combines steel, glass and concrete in a mix that's modern magic. Rambla House is a weekend home located in Zapallar, Valparaiso Region, along the central coast of Chile about 175km from Santiago. Located in the hot climate of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, House Mecano was designed by Roblesarq to optimize passive cooling strategies through bio-climatic design. This contemporary glass and steel home makes a modern addition to this wooded Shelter Island, New York setting. Seattle architecture firm McClellan Architects designed this lake house as an ode to nature, but not in the usual country-cottage way. Flip House designed by Fougeron Architecture has certainly turned residential architecture on its head!
Location: Port Townsend, Wa., USA Building plans for 26'-28' ocean-cruising STEEL sailboat? Location: Netherlands Sorry haven't seen any of those, but considering your requirements in STEEL it will be very very difficult for such a small vessel (without external ballast) to be 180 degree selfrighting.
Location: Sweden Danish Rose 28 The Danish Rose 28 by Martin Bekebrede comes close you could ask him about stability details. Originally Posted by mcm 26'-28', STEEL, blue-water, ocean-cruiser, with shoal-draft centerboard, and yet possessing complete 180 degree self-righting? In an inverted position the center of gravity is now well above the water and the floating hull unstable and should go back to an even keel with a nice puff or wind or wave movement, but usually the momentum of the roll will be enough to right itself again. As for the little cruiser; soon I am going to put pen to paper to design a little 25 - 26 steel boat - light weight steel construction blue water cruiser with very traditional lines above waterline. Originally Posted by Wynand N mcm, simply put, all ballasted sailboats will (should) right themselves. And that's exactly what I think, but I’m still not sure if I should go with a ballasted or unballasted centerboard. I've been to your web-site several times over the past year, and I really like the work you are doing.

Moreover, I don’t want the expense of custom-plans, so I looking for cheaper stock-plans. Also, I am considering either a quarter-berth, or having a very shallow cockpit with a full berth underneath and no inboard engine, only an outboard mount on the transom.
Here are some pictures of my TT24 under construction with lengthened cabin top and I changed the full keel to a naca series fine keel. I am a member of Brent Swain?s Origami Yahoo Group, and, if Brent?s design was a centerboarder instead of a twin-keeler, I would be satisfied.
I appreciate your opinion, and you certainly are not alone in that opinion, but I have read some other informed opinions that indicate that a centerboard pivoting into and out-of a strong, steel, stub-keel is very stable.


True, Brent is very positive about twin-keelers , but his is a minority opinion, and most opinions indicate that, outside the extreme low tides of North-West Europe, twin-keels are disadvantageous. So far my search for plans for a 26?-28? ocean-cruising, steel, centerboarder is still on-going.
Moreover, the Multi-Chine 28?s high freeboard is a waste, because I only need standing head-room in the galley and enclosed head area., thus I would prefer a lower freeboard replaced by a higher cabin top. The BS26 wouldnt be a good canidate to modify to a swing keel like you discribe, the hull draft is about 2'.
Not many steel sailboat plans for under 30' out there, might have to switch to diferent material to get what you want.
Location: Germany There are not many plans to see on the internet - but they are out there.
The origami method is a very quick way to build the hull, decks and cabin structure the rest about the same as any other method. Displacment around 6700 Lbs and 1800 Lbs lead balast, if you go to the origamiboat site look in the photo files tom's BS 26 I have a lot of pictures there.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
There are many plans you could choose from, therefore you should assess your needs from the very beginning. Building an outdoor shed is usually seen as a complex project, but in fact the construction process is a lot easier than it might seem at first glance. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be the first that gets our latest plans and for some other exclusive content. Also, follow us on Pinterest to get many ideas for your backyard from all the internet! Top Tip: Align the joists, making sure the diagonals of the floor are equal, before driving in the wood screws. Install the tongue and groove sheets as in the image, otherwise the floor won’t provide enough support to store heavy items. The double top plate will increase the rigidity of the outdoor shed, if it is built properly. Continue with the back wall, in the same manner described above, except for the door opening. After building the walls on a level surface, you have to install them into position on top of the floor.
Next, assemble the side walls of the shed, using the same woodworking techniques described above. Top Tip: Make sure the corners of the frame are right angled, using a good carpentry square. Building the roof of the shed is pretty much a straight-forward job, if you assemble the trusses on the ground. Afterwards, lift the trusses and install them into place, by driving 4” screws trough the bottom rafter in the top plates of the outdoor shed. In order to give your shed a nice appearance, as well as to protect the walls from rot, you should  install a 10” front and a back overhang. The house uses a steel cage in-filled with wood, and bravely cantilevers over a steep canyon.
But the steel posts and beams are proudly expressed inside and out, soaring through the house towards the view. This is mostly due to the weight (and the distribution of weight) of the steel, aluminum would be better for this job.
Honestly it would be cheaper for you to look at this site, buy one and stick it in a container to where you live, pay the customs and enjoy). As far as I know mine is the first 26 built as a 26, there are a few that were built but were modified a lot and stretched to 28'.


Under the files section there is a material list for the 26 that should give you a idea of what it takes. Building a shed in your backyard is a great project, as it is a great opportunity to learn new carpentry techniques, as well as to create a place where you could store garden tools or outdoor furniture.
Therefore, you should choose the plans that fit your needs, taste and budget, as there are many options available. Cut the wooden components only after measuring them several times, in order to avoid costly mistakes.
Make sure the top plates are perfectly horizontal, otherwise the roof won’t be symmetrical. Irrespective of your choice, make sure the blade of the saw has fine teeth, to prevent the edges from damaging. In order to get the job quickly and to drain the water properly, we recommend you to make the pitch of the roof about 30?. Cut the ends of the angled rafters at 30?, while the ends of the bottom rafters should be cut at 60?. Plumb every truss before installing it into place, otherwise you won’t be able to attach the roofing sheets.
Sand the wooden surfaces with 120 grit sandpaper, before applying primer and several coats of paint to the siding and studs. If you want to see more outdoor plans, we recommend you to check out the rest of our step by step projects.
Quincy Jones, the principal architect of the X-100, produced a simple, livable plan, with a concrete block street façade that protects private gardens, and a wall of glass opening to a pool. Thorne believed in using steel when it would accomplish what couldn't be done with other materials, or as elegantly or inexpensively with other materials. In the front of the house, the beams taper at their ends to thin arrow points, a Thorne touch.

Standing room at galley is no problem but the head being off to one side is with the deadrise of the hull.
Moreover, if you pay attention to details and use quality materials, the outdoor shed would add character to your garden and increase the value of your property. Nevertheless, don’t forget to go to the local building department before beginning the construction, as there are certain legal requirements you have to comply with, according to the area you live in.
Building the front wall of the shed is a simple task, if you pay attention to several aspects. Install a double header, as well as cripple studs, to provide support to the top of the window. As boat heels over, righting stability rises to a max in most cases at about 60 degrees of heel. Hire a professional handyman to get the job done for you, if you don’t want to undertake the risk of such a complex project. As you can see in the image, you have to leave enough room for the door opening, as well as to reinforce the frame with a double header and with cripple studs. Then the righting moment will gradually reduce until it reaches a point of vanishing stability and she goes over - this usually happens in a window of 110 - 140 degrees average, depending on design and designer.
