North Branch School Project Takes Shape

Our October Home Design/Build class is in full swing. For their building project they are working on a shed for the North Branch School , a small independent school for grades 7-9 in Ripton, VT. The shed is being built at Yestermorrow and will be transported to the site tomorrow, where NBS parents and volunteers will help complete some of the finishing touches.

Campus Improvements

Many thanks go out to Bob Shaffer, member of the Board, for his efforts with his tractor mowing the Yestermorrow meadows. It looks great!

West Wall Shop Doors Go In

We are nearing completion on one of our summer 2006 projects- the rebuilding of the woodshop west wall and installation of custom fabricated doors. The purpose of this project has been to improve the insulation in our building envelope (we added cellulose insulation and triple pane Accurate Dorwin windows above), as well as to allow access in and out of the shop. The new doors will allow us to build small structures inside during the winter, and then move them out for transport. This week the doors went in, and the windows within the doors will go in later today. Here are Martin and Travis, two fall interns, hard at work installing the doors.
