Druidstone Haven

The roof of the house is formed as a plywood stressed skin shell. Shaped formers are set on an elliptical steel ring beam and surfaced with a build-up of plywood layers stapled and glued into place. The upper and lower surfaces are set out on intersecting torodial profiles. Timber species were selected appropriate to their use; cedar forms with sitka spruce flanges support birch plywood skins. The double curved edge piece is shaped from cherrywood.
