2011 Process

Time flies..  I can not believe how quickly time passes.  Anyway, here are some more process photos of the Holyoke cabin.

Once the floor had a coat of finish on it we went ahead and cut some openings into the blue container.  This one is for the kitchen.

We then framed the interior out (walls and ceiling), insulated with rigid foam (2″ in the walls and 4″ in the ceiling) and added a vapor barrier for extra protection.  You can see we have also added some wiring for the low voltage lighting.IMG_0229 IMG_0228With framing complete we clad the entire framed areas with birch veneer plywood.  We pre-finished this at home during the week to keep things moving along on the weekends..
