    Session 4: The Final Stretch

    As we return for our last session, we become aware of the power of the landscape. The Bluff campus is covered in a blanket of green and the flowering trees signal the official end of winter. For us, this means we are in our final stage of  the building process. This week we have burned, sanded, and installed the siding on the west, north and east walls. The swamp cooler has been installed, and the interior walls have been erected and have their first coat of mud. All of our interior doors are in, and the shower is ready for tile. This week, Nicolas has been crafting our cabinetry in Salt Lake City and will be joining us early next week for installation. Last week, while most of us relaxed in Salt Lake, volunteers from the Northern Wasatch Rotary Club and the Layton Rotary Club nearly completed the construction of the deck. We really appreciate all of the hard work they did while we were away.

    Thanks for your help!

    Charring the wood is a process called Yakisugi. The result is a product that is weatherproof, insect proof, and maintenance free.
