Over the last week the wheels have my project have either been furiously turning, or puttering and spinning out. At the beginning of the week I was ready to clean out an entire shop to build the warming hut in, but after some discussion with Mr. P, we decided to use the shop we already had access to and change the way we build the hut. With this new development we quickly decided how to move forward with construction.
The easiest way to move forward was to complete our shop safety within the next two days. The shop safety we conducted was probably the best I have ever been a part of. It was hands on and conducted in a way that I actually learned about the tools and exactly what to watch out for when using them. Now that myself and Josh are both approved to work in the shop, its time to finally get into construction!
When we started construction on Thursday afternoon, we began to build from the ground up. Which means that our first component to build is the skid that the warming hut will rest upon during its time on the river. Once the skid is built, we are looking at building at least one wall per day. Since construction is admittedly starting later than I would’ve liked, a quick and steady pace is needed to finish the warming hut by the deadline.
Since we are coming up on the holidays and the end of the semester, the time crunch is always getting more and more stressful. But, after finally gaining some solid traction, my project is well on the way to completion!
Until next time,
