We are getting ahead of ourselves with planning the finalization of a roof, before a decision on the layout (where the structures should be located). Members should vote on their favorite layout option, a few examples…
1) Zero hard structure or shade in the LZ. All structures (classroom, clubhouse, fridge and vending machine, HG storage) located off the LZ at the N end of the LZ, and buried so their top is level with LZ.
2) Same as 1st option, but allow a small shade area (for spectators) in NW corner of LZ.
3) Everything (except HG storage) on top of the LZ and in its NW corner. Reduced landing area, more turbulence, increased landing pattern conflicts.November 27, 2020 at 4:24 PM #10824David WebbGeneral Member
In my opinion, option 2 seems like it would satisfy most of the responses I’ve seen so far.November 28, 2020 at 11:19 AM #10825
42” high railing. Can be open cables or balusters. The idea i have is to slope the metal roof all around the deck up to the railing or about 10-12” below the railing.November 28, 2020 at 11:22 AM #10826
Best place to watch the action, unobstructed, on the roof deck. A good place for tables and chairs, food, classes, protected and contained.November 28, 2020 at 6:29 PM #10827Bo FrazierGeneral Member
Some shade is needed for those 110 plus degree summer days. Outside of the lz would be great.November 29, 2020 at 6:24 AM #10828Dan DeWeeseGeneral MemberCSS Instructor
Way cool JP. Steel frame. Minimal wind profile.November 29, 2020 at 11:28 AM #10830
So I’m a little unclear. Is this to be in the same general vicinity as the existing concrete, or (as shorthand, not literally) backed up against the candy cane?
I’m not actually too fussed either way, just unsure as to what the consensus is.December 4, 2020 at 4:33 PM #10842George StebbinsGeneral Member
If I understand it correctly, I like option 2.December 6, 2020 at 10:43 AM #10855Bob PobocikGeneral Member
Option 2 does sound good..no one has mentions shade sails, I put some up every summer to cover our above ground pool in the back yard so the grand kids don’t get sun burnt. They’re easy to setup and take down and easily replaced and affordable. The poles they’re attached to could be an issue for some pilots to avoid.December 8, 2020 at 9:02 AM #10864
Put Mitch, and Bob’s ideas together : both ideas have polls ; but
when high winds are forecast, ( just roll up the sails) ! Could even
make the sail rolling part Easy ; copy a jib furling rig , found on

In cleaning out the container, I was reminded that we have a projection screen, seven or eight feet wide.
We have, in the past, had parties where we watched movies.
While not a big construction consideration, we might want to put it in a checklist and think about where the best place to hang it would be.March 26, 2021 at 11:02 AM #11752Benjamin HortonGeneral Member
EV charging station!
also, make certain sections of the roof a retractable awning so it can be brought in during high wind.
