Lindy Weston, Ph.D.
This website documents the projects that I am involved with. I am a building designer, a photographer, and an historian. Hopefully my website will encourage connections and meaningful content.
|Residential Construction Document Drafting.
I enjoy drafting and creating construction documents for Habitat for Humanity, and currently create home designs and structural drawings for building projects. I use Draftsight, AutoCAD and Revit to create working drawings and estimation sets. Since 2012 I have created thousands of plans/sets. I have worked in the electrical trade, concrete trade, and drafting trade. I am certified by the Post Tension Institute to install and inspect foundations.
Photography has been rewarding as well, and I have captured an array of subjects including architectural, promotional, weddings, graduations, prom, and other events.
In 2018 I finished my Ph.D thesis titled "The Gothic Cathedral and the Liturgy in Construction". My thesis addresses how medieval cosmology informed the design and construction of Gothic cathedrals, and how contemporary cosmology is inappropriate for understanding the historical constructions. While living in Britain I was an assistant lecturer in architectural history at the University of Kent.
