Sharing our wooden yurt building experience and more.
That’s a perfect title for what’s happened this week at our yurt but it also happens to be where we got our windows, doors and light tubes from. They were contacted this week because Matthew ran into various roadblocks installing the Loewen exterior window casing. Ryan, at Seattle’s W D & M, facilitated the modifications Loewen provided, so that Matthew could finish the job. A big thank you to Ryan and most especially Matthew for having to deal with that unforeseen situation. Also this week, the rest of the exterior cedar siding to finish off the windows. It’s looks really great!
We met with Joe Neal of Vashon Sheet Metal, who will do our gutters and metal work in the next few weeks. We choose Zincalume half round gutters with 3″ round downspouts and midnight bronze for around the base of the foundation (covering up that pink stuff you see in the picture). I’ll post photos after they are installed.
This week a landscaper will come and install a drain around the perimeter of the house. It will be topped off with river rocks that go around about a foot out.
