Details for strawbale walls

Postby Dawson » Thu Mar 16, 2017 7:25 am

Hello!

As I proceed into strawbale layouts I am wondering how one might align doors to the outside, while still opening inwards? And also how I could make the openings (windows and doors) flare, as they do in a deep wall?

Thanks,

Dawson

Hi Dawson,

Thank you for your post.

At the moment you aren't able to change where the doors are position other than how they are by default.

I haven't heard of openings flare before. Would you be able to please provide an image of what this looks like?
Kind Regards,
Grant

Hi Grant, Here is one type of opening flare. In any deep wall, so as to not get a tunnel effect in the window opening it would flare open to admit light. Same would be done in a stone house in this area. I don't expect there is an easy answer, just thought I'd show another situation I tend to design for.

Thanks,

Dawson

Hi Dawson,

Thank you for sending the information across.

At the moment there isn't an easy way to do this inside of PlusSpec so you would need to manually draw the walls using SketchUp tools. I will pass this suggestion onto our development team for further discussion.
Kind Regards,
