Building: Day #24
The remaining steel tubes were set in place to complete the truss frame.
This really underlines our course outline “scarcity and creativity”. Fascinating to watch one of the local Chilean workers climb down from the structure using simply rope and a ladder.
With time ticking, the mounting of the panels could commence on the far end of the building, while others put into place the horisontal backing studs that were remaining on the north and south facing facades.
Others were assembling the steel cable details. The bolts were tested and torqued to estimate the right force capacities. This required a duo collaboration.
The wire cables cut and assembled with all the details.
The window frames were also coming into place now.
Working later and later, but the sunsets this time were absolutely stunning.
Work lamps in place for a little late night working.
