Product & Pictorial Work Log
Any time you work on creating your product, you need to log it. This can include doing research on how to create your product, talking with your project facilitator about your product, going shopping for your product, and, of course, any time you physically work on completing your product. Remember, 15 hours is the minimum amount of hours that have to be logged, but most of you will work much longer on your product than that.
Use the below template and explanations to track your progress. Eventually, we’ll transfer this information over to your Office365 website that you will develop for the judges.
Date and time should be formatted exactly as shown below:
Date (including the day of the week)
Hours you worked on the project that day
Total number of hours
In this column, you should describe everything you did during the noted hours. All activity descriptions should be written in complete sentences. The length of this will vary depending on how many hours you worked on your project on that particular date and time. If you work on your product for an extended amount of time, you need to explain to your judges and me why it took so long to do this activity. Keep in mind that waiting for paint to dry or something equally as uninvolved DOES NOT count towards time.
This column should function as a journal of sorts. You are meant to reflect on the activity you just performed. For example, are you excited, frustrated, etc.? Was the task you just completed tedious, easier than you expected, more difficult, etc.? Did you have to make any serious decisions while executing this activity? If so, how did you feel about making those decisions? Do you anticipate any struggles? Have you triumphed over something? Etc. Etc.
All commentary should be written in complete sentences.
Pictures with captions:
Pictures should be meaningful and have you in them for the most part. We want to see YOU doing something. While that’s not always the case, you should try to illustrate the process of creating your product in the most interesting way possible. Pictures should NOT include the materials you’ll use laid out or something equally underwhelming.
When writing captions, DO NOT state the obvious. For example, “I am icing a cake,” or, “This is me sawing some wood.”
DO identify who is in the picture, specifically state the action being performed in the picture by using descriptive words, and write in present tense. For example, “My project facilitator and I are working on intricately piping my cake. The hardest part is the detail.”
Note: The first and last pictorial logs MUST each include a picture of you with your facilitator, preferably working on your product.

After looking for reference, I took the concept I had in my head and merged it with what I had looked at in order to start up a draft project.
I set up an area of 7’ x 28’ x 8’ for the trailer dimensions.
While working on it, I kind of went on a whim and strayed away from the visual references I found online and implemented more of my own ideas and concepts.

Further developed my design by adding a loft level and a kitchen.
While taking a good look at what I’ve made, I noticed I wasn’t even following my vision anymore and that the structure looked more like a truck trailer house rather than a traditional tiny house.

Added a bathroom and, a simple kitchen, and did minor adjustments to the heights and other measurements in order to meet road requirements.
During this stage, I heavily reconsidered starting over with a second iteration of the concept.

Went online again to find existing plans to consider in my next iteration of the design.
With the plans shown, I took the external measurements and developed a modified version of the plan.
Went to the source of my inspiration, Tumbleweed Tiny Houses, and studied various plans from them.
In this session, I began work on the second model. I borrowed a base trailer from a user-created model from someone on revitcity.com
From there, I began inserting the hardwood floors supported by metal framing, iron rods, and wood joists.

This session involved me modeling smart storage – furniture that also acts as means for storage. In such a small space, storage is essential to have in as many places as possible.
Shown here is what I call Storage steps that lead up to the loft and have hollow shelf spaces within the set itself

This session is where I implemented the storage steps, as well as, adding in cabinet models for the kitchen, which were borrowed from someone on RevitCity.
The bathroom area was also split up and sectioned off.

This session is where I went ahead with making more furniture. I designed a storage bench that had a hatch opening beneath the covers to store things within it.
I wanted to create two versions; an opened one and a closed one. I wanted to use each for the renderings to get at least one view with the hatch opened, revealing the insides

I took this session to look on revit city and various bim object sites to find some good cabinet models. I put in the ones I found and set up the kitchen area.
It really took a while to find the right models to use. People make some basic things. I was about to go ahead and make some of my own but then I found some.
Tuesday, February 14th
I added the walls and the doors, the windows, a lamp, and some shelving.
I added the roof using precise measurements for the slope of each section. I also completed the flooring for the upstairs loft.
Honestly, adding that outdoor area on the roof was so hard to do. Lining up the other walls with the space was impossible with standard measurement and they are currently at some random decimal.

Added further furnishing.
Created more furniture.
Worked on the loft.
Created a site to put the trailer onto. Renderings were done as well for my portfolio and walkthrough videos were also created.
The walkthrough videos were so irritating to create; the computer running Revit couldn’t handle high quality output so it crashed quite often.
