Building the Curves

Rounded or curved walls are nothing new to the building industry. We’ve been constructing them for many years in commercial construction and residential as well. Today, the industry offers many products that make it fast and easy. Different builders prefer different methods for creating the curved or round walls, but no matter how it’s done, the effect is profound; breaking out of the box

Some builders shy away from using new products. They prefer the do it yourself method. Wood veneer can be used in place of sheet rock to cover a wall, and plate lines can be created with layers of plywood cut from a template, however, time is money, and although the products available today cost a little more, they reduce labor, making the job a breeze

The working drawings I create have standard dimensions, with a 1/4″ graph to help builders shape unusual curves. A chalk line graph is used to layout the pattern for the foundation and the interior framed walls. Most builders find it challenging, but very rewarding


Below are a list of product links, but if you Google it, you’ll find many more companies that are branching out due to demand
