As the Friday closing bell rang, the ecoBuild site was standing proud and bold in the full summer sunshine. Holloway and young men sprang for cold ones and shade. Paula, the most intelligent structural engineer on this side of the planet, came to Kings Drive to cheer and applaud, as music was turned low and the tidying-up came to a close. What a week of growing walls, earth-bag beginnings and major beam placement.

    Happy Birthday Diana!

    Loving the updates, thanks. So good to see the post and beam structure rise up, as well as other framing elements. After all this time spent creating the critical and unceremonious foundation, the form of the home is now beginning to come alive.

  2. Happy Birthday, Diana!
    Hope you have a fun, meaningful celebration planned for your special day. With love...
