I gave up my weekend nights to finish the section model of my building. For everyone who isn't an architecture student, a section model or drawing is a slice of a building. You can see all of the support structure like beams and joists and wooden studs and stuff. My professors wanted section models made of basswood for our presentation Wednesday. So, I powered through and delivered.
I finished at like 5:15 last night (morning?!) and wanted to go to bed, so I only have one photo of the finished thing. But here's photos during the whole process!
Those tiny joists I was talking about.
PILES of them. And they all turned out to be too big.
First floor joists in! This is a gym space.
Gym ceiling in!
A nice little cut-away to reveal the structure of the building.
The classrooms on the second floor.
Glass walls with wood doors! I thought it would be a good kind of different.
Those damn joists again.
Very beautifully arrayed.

And the wooden siding on the building.
This is only a slice of my building, the actual design has three buildings in it, but there's no way in poo I'm modeling all of that.
