Wed 7 Dec 2011
Saturday December 3rd marked the end of another fall documentation class. This year’s final took the students to Kacanda Farm in Birdsboro, PA. A recent graduate of the program, Leah Kacanda, invited the class to her father’s old farm complex. In the tradition of documentation finals, none of the students had seen the property before.
The fall 2010 documentation class also drew parts of Kacanda Farm for their documentation final last year. The previous class focused their efforts on a very early log house. While this years documentation class focused on a beautiful stone bank barn. One crew drew the second floor of the bank barn, another the elevation of the barn that the two floors are visible, and the last team drew a gable-end elevation, as well as an interior framing section.
The weather was beautiful especially for December, and the Kacandas cooked and provided everyone with lunch! Leah made sausages with fixings, pasta salad, green salad, and a coffee crumb cake. Copious amounts of coffee were also available throughout the day!
CHAD would like to extend a super special thank-you to the Kacandas for inviting us into your house! See everyone in Fall 2012 for another Documentation Class!
