Wednesday saw much progress in many areas and aspects of our cabins. In Monument Valley, Cam spent the day on formwork for the patio fire pit pour. Additional concrete pours were done for the bathroom and kitchen counters.

Pipsa spent the majority of the day in the bathroom doing waterproofing prep work for plaster which will be started very soon.

After a few hours of planing, the flooring of the loft was finally installed and, despite many limitations from material size and aperture=driven aesthetics, the pattern for the top bunk wood cladding was finally established. It has been a long process but it was wonderful to finally see a piece nailed off!
First piece of interior barn wood cladding is finally up!
Drywall mud and sanding continued in both cabins throughout the day as Sam tries to make it as smooth as possible for our initial coat of primer.

Jason spent much of his day figuring out a detail for the closet door so the hinges are barely visible while still making sure the door is perfectly set.

Coop and Arron jumped on patio details with furring strips and additional structure to hold up the anticipated slating.

So excited at the prospect of spending her day on a ladder!
Window frames were painted to create consistency throughout both cabins. Seth, as window lead, has spearheaded this process which makes everyone so happy now that our approach to the cabins does not involve seeing the pristine steel south facades with white vinyl window frames.

Blue Mountain also made lots of headway. With the bathroom and west walls sheathed in OSB, interiors and steal team will soon be able to move forward with barn wood and steal walls. Additionally, exterior cladding team managed to put of the last few pieces of cladding on the north truss and is working to finish the remaining parapet caps.

Linh was also able to finish applying Red Guard to the Hardie Board so plaster will begin in the bathroom within the next couple of days.

Looking forward to the rest of the session to finish everything up!
