As we move into colder weather, the need to complete any outside work becomes more and more evident. The little greenhouse on the west side of the property, a composite of repurposed materials, is attracting a lot of attention for its beautiful design. Fence posts are going in. Foundational work on the property is nearing completion, with gravel pits lining the borders of the property so that water can drain into the water table. The same is true for the alley, with the final portions of gravel just being added. Lifts have allowed the final application of metal siding to our bay windows on the 4th floor.
Inside the building, drywall is allowing us a better sense of perspective when entering the various apartments. After drywall was applied to the walls of the rooftop cabins, the walls were painted black. This will serve as a backdrop when the walls are covered in repurposed lathe (that was gathered earlier from the building).
Here’s a look at the past week’s work.
