    Default The Harwich 1912 Hostel

    Here's a drawing I did of Harwich's old fire station which is now a hostel. It was fun drawing it and easier because it's symmetrical saving a lot of duplication

    Nice job. I like the brick work. Flemish bond? (alternating stretchers and headers).

    Here's an animation with Prisma manipulated images. a bit jumpy first time through but once the 6 images it runs fairly smoothly.

    "Flemish bond?"

    I don't remember the different types of brick bonds Jono but that looks about right to me.

    . Flemish Bond For this type of bond, each course is made up of alternate headers and stretchers. Each header is centered on a stretcher above and below and every alternate course begins with a header in the corner. For breaking the vertical joints in the successive courses, quoin closers are introduced in alternate courses next to the header. This bond can be significantly sub-divided into two diverse types:

    • Single Flemish Bond A combination of English bond and Flemish Bond. The front exposed surface of the wall is composed of Flemish bong and the back surface is composed of English bond in every single course.
    • Double Flemish Bond This bond takes a similar appearance both in the front and the back elevations.

    Walls with Flemish Bond are complex to erect and demand greater skills.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Nice egg. You can just imagine it when it was a fire station. Big red doors with those horses pulling a red and brass pumper coming out the door.

    Prima rocks. I have been doing a lot of work between my computer and my iPhone emailing images back and forth. I think Mac users can do this wirelessly. If you have the premium version of Prisma you can create your images in HD so the original resolution of your image is retained.

    Yes Gary, I agree it's a great image manipulation app. My big issue with it as you're aware is I don't like manipulating images on a tiny mobile screen much preferring to do so on my Desktop screen. I can do it very successfully using Steam but I can't for the life of me learn how to import images into Steam ..... It nukes my mind!

    @ Gray. Yes this is my memory of that fire station, a different age.
