I just returned from a week in my happy place - Michigan's Upper Lower Peninsula, Burt Lake specifically. Cool weather, sandy beach, pontoon, north woods - the perfect place for staring, unfocused, into the distance. But back to reality ... Corbu is three months old, and it is time for an update.
Remember Corbu? The little project to make accounting for architectural firms quicker, better, cheaper. Three months ago that was the vision. Today, while the vision is still a bit fuzzy, the parts that have come into focus are telling me that there is a need. None of us went into architecture so that we could do accounting, accounting being just about as far from architecture as you can get. And yet 15,000 of us who have our own firm are pulled into the necessity of accounting for about two man-days a month. About 2.5% of us like, and even enjoy, the challenge of accounting. 97.5% of us - not so much. I think we will be able to help that 97.5%.
All my posts about stairs gathered in one place for easy research, reference, and access.
Stairs are one of the features of a design that can take an inordinate amount of time to design. (Toilets are another.) The reason is invariably that the layout decided upon in Schematic Design doesn't work out upon closer inspection in Construction Documents. Finding out that you need an extra 2’ leads to a bad day. Finding 2' means re-design.
