Some days, it’s pretty incredible the amount of work that we can get accomplished in just one work day. Even on days like today when we’re shorthanded by half (congratulations to those of us who graduated today!), we still managed to get plenty of items crossed off our to-do lists.
Katie’s exterior cladding is catching up quickly with extra help from other students and staff members; she even powered through the heat in full-length clothing to cut down metal strips! Jeremy’s oculus is reaching the final stages of completion; it’s now clad, sealed, and properly roofed with its fancy acrylic skylight. We even stopped to play the old ‘how-many-students-can-you-fit-into-the-oculus’ game. (Hint: 8) Morgan prepped, primed, and painted all six of our doors on site with his ingenious door-painting method. Liz and Rachel both worked out the kitchen island, making sure that it fit perfectly into its place. We didn’t see or hear much from Hiroko and Atsushi, but the evidence of their dedication to our plastering continues to show up around the house. Check out the pictures below for the before-and-afters of today’s efforts.
