Cornice moulding work commenced this week with a mock-up of the architect's design. Xav masterfully translated the complex drawing into what you see below. This moulding detail will adorn the roof overhang on the Atrium and Back Porch of the Marine Mansion.
An entry and exit for airflow, key to the rainscreen system is provided by a perforated galvanized metal moulding we call bug screen. Above is end-view of bug screen sandwiched between ripped 2x4s; this sits atop the corbels...
... as seen here on the back porch, with a 2x8 horizontal and 2x10 vertical at the bottom. The brackets will sit above the support posts, which themselves will be trimmed out later.
Stay tuned for more on the cornice moulding as we finish it up.
