We completed Week 5 of P2 construction, with two build days (#8 and #9). Lots of progress! During Wednesday a full crew of builders completed the S and E exterior walls, and nailed together all main floor interior walls. Our Saturday builders completed a number of work items needed to tidy the site up, and complete exterior sheathing.
Progress Photos Week 5
Early in Week 5 our equipment operators went to work and back-filled the trench around the house. With the dirt pile and earth moving machine removed it’s easy to see what we’re up to.
A builder nails down the exterior wall sheathing. The walls are built lying down to ease construction.
The 1st floor becomes the work platform for wall. Space is tight as some builders finish the E exterior wall, and others are cutting materials that go together to form the interior walls.
Interior walls come together quickly.
Field changes to plan are common. Here we document changes to stairs builders have recommended so stairway meets expected clearances. Again, getting something built is a collaborative effort across many different disciplines.
Our Saturday build crew was anchored by a great team from The Mill, a major apartment community in Mill Creek, WA. It was a wet cold build but everyone’s spirit kept it lively. We completed all our work items by lunch time.
Coming in Week 6: 2nd floor joists, flooring, and exterior/interior wall. More very visible progress in the coming week.
Take a look back at Week 4 progress photos.
Come help us build P2.
