Progress at the North Carolina State Capitol

At this writing, Aaslestad Preservation Consulting, llc is in the middle of a project to document the NC State Capitol building (1840) in Raleigh. The exterior surfaces are being documented both in line drawing and hybrid imagery. When this is wrapped up, the interiors will be given a similar treatment. These drawings will then be augmented by a series of detail drawings capturing the many rooms’ unique door and window profiles, friezes and such. Stay tuned!

Three Structures at Morven Park Documented

Morven Park Barn Complex

Above and below are screen shots (from AutoCAD) showing a group of rectified images assembled into model space depicting the existing conditions of one of three separate structures recently documented at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA.

For this project, the “drawings” are really a series of boundaries to rectified imagery organized onto different drawing layers.

All of the rectified images shown have been desaturated in order to make them read more clearly. Color versions are also provided.

Survey Documents of Fort Sumter Masonry Completed

Exterior Masonry at Fort Sumter, Charleston, SC

After shooting a series of photographs of the old Southern stronghold in October I’ve just completed a set of forty seven tabloid size sheets that capture and represent the existing conditions of the exterior walls and courtyard elevations. These will be used later in the year as the basis for a study that will clearly distinguish different periods of masonry and masonry infill in order to create a viable preservation plan.

Scal-able Photographs of the Entry to Fort Sumter

The drawings and rectified images (hybrid drawings) are laid out for plotting at the architectural scale of 1/4″=1′-0″ – but can be printed at larger scales if needed.
