The end of the semester is upon us… creating a nostalgic reflection of the last 4 months, one cannot help but absorb, look back, and see all that was taught and learned (even for staff members). As the days have gone by, new relationships formed between students and the incredible transformation of creativity was brought to life. Through the course of the semester we see the highest highs and the lowest lows; sometimes even bringing tears of stress.
With the final work day finished, the students can celebrate a great success and will leave Bluff with the satisfaction of knowing their home is complete. To complete a home in one semester is a huge goal to reach, and they have done a tremendous job. It is at this moment we can all look back and say ‘this was worth it!’
Final features of the Little Water project include an insulated berm wall system, a solar chimney, a rocket stove, a second roof ventilation system, a bread oven and ADA accessibility. This home will be fully powered with electricity this week with the water line shortly after. Ben and Sara are scheduled to move in early June.
