Building: Day #25
Today we had our breakfast before sunrise and started work in the first glimpses of daylight.
The work remaining: Fastening the remaining horisontal backing studs to all the walls before mounting the remaining panels to the facades. Then trimming the railings once in place. Next suspending the canopies between the truss frame.
The old doors from the homes destroyed in the earthquake have found a new home.
The first canopy is brought forth into daylight and suspended into place between the truss frames. A very emotional and exciting moment.
Second canopy is suspended into place.
Before the final 2″x 2″ timber terrace could be put into place, the waterproofing membrane had to be fastened to the roof.
More panels are mounted into place. The design of the pattern in the facade begins to really reveal itself.
The work of putting up the canopies is proceding with good tempo. The third one is set into place. Pulling and attaching the corners of the canopy to the connection points requires great physical strength.
Work on the flooring in-between the two rooms is underway. Also the completion of the interior facades are in progress.
Tacking asphalt paper to the walls for weather protection.
The north facade complete.
Working in the last rays of daylight.
