    Euphoria Is Upon Us

    With this project and semester coming to an end very quickly we are all working very diligently to ensure this project is completed by the end date. Since there are many things that are happening, we, the group are all split up coordinating many different tasks. We have the interiors team working both on site and at the shop, the canopy team is working on getting the soffit up above the fire trough, the cladding team getting the last bit of cladding up, mechanical getting the mini split heating and air conditioning unit ready, electrical team getting the lighting ready to go, rammed earth and stud wall team have paired up to create the steel box and mini stud wall that will be inserted into the rammed earth wall looking at the grill, and plumbing is on standby until further installation of the cabinets.

    Now that the cabinets are done with the exception of the last few pieces that need to be stained and clear coated, they are ready to be installed early next week and finally start to make the project look like a kitchen.

    Cori hosted our night class and she told us all about her and Josh’s trip to Canada and the obstacles they had to overcome due to the ridiculous amount of snow that was happening in Idaho, Montana, and Canada.

    With everyone still in high spirits about this project coming to and end we are very excited to see it complete and be able to share it with the current community and for many generations to come.
