Build a Model House

Chloe Haipek
For my senior capstone I built a scale model house, with an opening roof to look down to the inside of the second floor’s floor plan. It has a fully decorated second floor, and a decorated exterior with a painted front and back yard. It helped to test my design process, time management, creativity, and problem solving.
I believe I have really grown from this project and was able to learn from the mistakes I had made. It was challenging to keep everything to scale and to stay precise when cutting and gluing. Also, it was difficult to make sure everything was properly supported without ruining the aesthetic. Overall, I really enjoyed being able to work by myself and create something that was uniquely mine.
I would also like to say thank you to Mr. Behm who pushed me to put a base on the house which really made it look complete. Also to Ms. Bird for sitting with me in the library helping me problem solve my errors. I think the senior capstone is a great learning experience for every senior, everyone will be able to walk away with more knowledge and a new skill.
