Moving and Grooving

A few of us got our hands dirty on-site during studio on Wednesday and the rest of the crew stayed back to keep working on the roof design. The roof design is wrapping up and is looking great. A couple of us will be heading out to the site again tomorrow to finish up cleaning [...]

Finishing The Foundation

Hey Guys, As we begin to wrap up our semester we would like to thank all of you for following the development of our community build project this far. Yesterday we began to take off the formwork of the concrete that was poured last Friday. I can definitely say it pleased us to finally see [...]

Trellis(h) in the moment.

On a crisp and cool Sunday morning you can't beat sipping a cappuccino while looking for inspiration at the Magnolia Community Garden.

Little by little the Vat Shack progressively is getting [...]

Rolling with the Punches

As we move along through this process of building the Indigo Vat Shack we are starting to realize just how far we have come since the beginning stages of designing three months ago. Suddenly, this structure we have been designing is starting to take shape and we are a little over two weeks from the [...]

Just Your Average Trailer Breakdown

We cut through the sides of the trailer with the portable bandsaw, as you can see in the featured image when clicking on the blog. Also, being done [...]
