10 Jan 2013 Yes it’s cold: Thursday’s field notes
It’s true. Last week was really cold. This week has been warmer and yet it’s still below freezing most days. With insulated coveralls and thermal gear it’s like any other day. Progress is our goal.
This week we have project updates from our two Kingsburg homes as well as from 2454 Halifax.
2454 received a makeover with a full removal of the old shingles and exterior trim. A layer of grey VaproShield was added for weather protection and pressure treated strapping was applied over the top to attach the exterior cladding. We won’t tell what that’s gonna be yet but we’ll give you a hint. It’s going to be white.
At Kingsburg the team has been making steady progress with the Cape Cod siding on Kingsburg 1. The mix of vertical and horizontal orientation posses some challenges -we love challenges. Final windows installations took place as well.
Finally, Kingsburg 2 is almost completely wrapped and strapped for siding. On this one we used the orange VaproShield for the both the bunkhouse and main house. We also installed several windows. The weather at Kingsburg tends to be extreme so precaution is overlooked.
