Little Cabin, Big Plans!

Progress is slowly being made on the sheathing of the timberframe cabin. We hope to be the group of interns to snag the "completing cabin 3" distinction. Interior and exterior siding and a set of stairs to replace the ramp are the main requirements, but given the site's tricky topography, the project might prove somewhat more time-consuming than expected -- just check out the setup on that scaffolding...

Other (completed!) projects include the local foods bulletin board, an orderly marriage of wood scraps (amongst them rosewood and ipe) scavenged from the pit and of flyers keeping yesterstudents posted on the various foods produced around the Valley.

The mouldering toilet has also gotten a mighty solid damn goodlooking spankin' new set of stairs; grand opening ceremony is yet to be scheduled -- we'll keep you posted.
