Experiment Pics #2

Here's some pics of a friction-fit assembly system with separate tabs:

I'm swamped at work and home. There's just never enough time to really hammer out an idea before I am exhausted. I'm wondering if I can make simple textured "posts" with friction-fit tabs, so the corners will look a little more polished. I also want to put together some interior walls, add floors, trusses and a roof to this to see how it all goes together.

Fine. Pics or it didn't happen. Here are some pics of the slip-the-tab-under-the-tile experiment:

Experimentation continues

I'm back to trying out some friction-fit assembly methods. I've got some 6" walls right now that assemble with slots on the sides and two on the top and bottom. The tabs that hold them together slip into the walls and hopefully out of sight. Floors can be permanently attached, or rested in place, I think. Tabs come in (currently) four flavors - "I", "T", "L" and "+" shapes. I might make a variant of the "T" tabs with a small lip rather than two of the full tabs. That'd be for resting floors on, and holding removable upper walls in place.

It's getting late. I hope to try to build a roof and truss tomorrow to see if it all holds together!
