SK1 Welcome

Welcome to my Sketchbook.

First of all, you should know that 'SK' is short for 'sketch.' When I'm working on ideas to send to clients, I number them sequentially, SK1, SK2, etc. so our conversations are more effective. Many of my clients live out of town so good communication is important.

Drawing by hand is very useful when I'm walking the site with a client, or meeting with them over a cup of coffee. Sitting in front of a computer tends to generate sketches more like this one using SketchUp. The three dimensional renderings allow me to explore the massing of the house, how to control solar gain, etc.

So it only seems appropriate to extend this idea of sketching and sharing to blogging.  Here in the Sketchbook, I'll show you sketches, photos and other items that will offer you a better understanding of architectural design for the energy efficient home. I hope you enjoy it. And if you have questions, you can always reach me at: jbsties@sunbiosis.com / 434.249.2932

Cheers,
