Professional Portfolio 2010

  1. 1. William Schmeling
  2. 2. Introduction Professional Work is a document that exhibits a compilation of proj- ects worked on by William Schmeling while employed by both archi- tects and contractors. In the Table of Contents five projects are listed chronologically. They begin at the start of William’s architectural ca- reer and end with a project worked on for Joshua Schmeling Con- struction in the Summer of 2010. These projects occur at many differ- ent scales, the largest being producing a set of as-built drawings for a large educational facility and smallest is designing and building a small childrens playhouse. Through close investigation, actual hands on experience, and site analysis, these projects were visualized and then completed as a result of team efforts.

Exterior Light Fixture Cedar Board Shutters Architectural Shingle Exterior Glass Door Dogwood Bushes In 2010 a small children’s playhouse was designed and built to replace an old play set in the yard of the Schmeling Residence. It was commissioned by the owner for her grandchildren and de- signed to resemble the architectural style the existing home. Ele- ments such as the roofing materials, color swatches, and even miniature shutters were built to match the home. The playhouse was built at a minimal cost as a result of using left over materials from previous jobsites. We were even able to salvage pieces from the old play set that was taken down. Inside, bunk beds are stacked along the back wall and face a flat screen TV is located above the front door. There are also two small chil- dren’s desks across from the beds with chairs next to them.
