Really almost there - Highlights from the last few work days

Finishing up the insulation and getting the PT plywood on the walls and ceiling.

It's turning GREEN!

Sunday work day- another great team getting lots done.

Sunday work day- another great team getting lots done.

The very last piece of blue board insulation cut to go in!!!   Neil having fun with FRP - that was only the third piece of 20. Others were a little less fun.

More painting - FRP on the ceiling is FUN (not) - the last of the ceiling FRP finally in.  And looking good, all 8 layers of the walls are done!

We have another workday scheduled for Sunday July 24th to get the AC and door in and finish trim and painting.  Maybe a bit of roofing too.  Come join us!

Getting the insulation and hardware cloth in and sealing, sealing sealing!

CHCV's new UVM Intern Holly St. Jean, helps with cooler building on her first day.  We look forward to having her help in all aspects of the program over the summer and maybe in to the fall.

We have now been working for over a month on the project.  Priming almost done with extra help on our 11th work day.  New and returning volunteers came to help. Thanks Lisa Mase for sharing your UVM Intern Meg with us!  Next up a painting party anyone?

Another great team...Neil going a bit screwy - The AC unit will get quite a nice pastoral view - The rain sets in after a hot day of work. 

Come join us next week to try and get it finished off!

It has rafters!

Lots of rafters that went up fast, with Theo, Allie, Katura, Neil and Eli helping!  Now we can put a tarp on and keep the rain out until next workday next week on Wednesday the 22nd. 

Another productive workday - thanks to the volunteers who stepped up and came to help when we needed more hands. We have a building (w/a tarp for a roof and roofing as a wall)!

The Walls Start to Go Up!

Thanks to Allen Lumber for the striped decking and other discounted materials for this project.

Lots of hard work by volunteer builders calls for a good lunch provided by CHCV with help from the Hunger Mountain Coop, Four Springs Farm and Manghis Bread.
