All Work And No Clay

Day 11 of house-building

If you've been wondering what I've been up to, for the last five weeks I was helping build a home-away-from-home on Lopez Island for Lisa and I, to replace the little cabin Lisa had. The only clay I saw was around the foundation, which I didn't get a chance to play with. I did get a fair amount of practice hammering, though. Click on the photo to go to a gallery of images of the house taking shape. The floor, exterior walls and roof are made from Structural Insulated Panels, or SIPs - styrofoam sandwiched between sheets of OSB. Below area few more photos from my stay.
