SketchUp Model

Oronoque Saltbox Historic Home Survey

I’ve developed a complete, three-dimensional model of the Oronoque saltbox’s timber frame, using Trimble SketchUp. Such models should prove valuable to historians and students of architectural history, in that not only do they capture important facts about a particular historic home, but also impart an understanding of how traditional timber frames were actually built.

All the various schematics published in my Survey Report of the Oronoque saltbox are simply different perspectives of this same three-dimensional model, as are the drawings shown on this page.
