The metal roof installation was fast! Wonderful series of progress shots. Thank you to Toby and Harry for the installation hard work. There were no slips as the roof is at a low pitch. Solar gain will be perfect with the excellent Southern exposure and roof angle.
Exterior button up and interior electrical work by Harry Anderson. Window installation was a breeze for Harry. Many thanks to Doug French, soybean farmer in Kansas for donating 5 of the stationary horizontal windows. We re-purposed several sets of french-doors to create the large stationary windows. These will be great for heat gain during the winter months when the directional level of the sunlight is low. T'Alyne will be utilizing these upper windows to play with the natural light during studio production. The corner windows are all double high efficiency and perfectly situated to utilize good air-flow throughout the working space. Solar panels will be situated on the metal roof top.
It is so exciting to watch the sunrise and set in this studio location! More amazing views and hikes upcoming. In the meantime, the walls went up quickly. Harry and a troop of men met to hoist heavy 2"x10ft stud-walls.

Phase 1 Excavation day.
Clear the ground dropping trees and leveling the ground for a 1,200 square foot cement pad that will make way for the solar powered artist Studio. Click YouTube link below to see more video clips during excavation process. More updates in the coming months.
The Polynesians used stick charts as a navagation method by early seafarers to help them locate different islands and sea routes. Stick charts are supposed to be known as the germinal seeds of the detailed maps we use today.
