Sharing the Only One

Sharing our wooden yurt building experience and more.

#22 Building the walls

Our goal of building a new “old” house has begun to take shape in the beginning installation of our walls.  The reclaimed 1910 old growth douglas fir shiplap wood is making our dreams come true. (Supplied by Bruce Borjesson of Seattle)

Here Corbin installs the Pro Clima DB+ vapor barrier to the interior walls in preparation for the shiplap.

The “old” look we are going for is especially emphasized by the 1940’s stove we just bought as it sits against the soon to be painted wall.  All walls will be the same white as the ceiling, getting rid of the black spots you see now. (Yolo Colorhouse Air 01).  Our hope is that we feel like we are in a early 1900’s house without all the fixer upper stuff we’d have to do if we actually had one.

Finishing up the metal work on our roof.

Workers from Vashon Sheet Metal finishing up some work on our roof before the gutters are installed at a later date.   They installed the end pieces to the roof (you can see one in this photo where his hand is placed). So many details we hadn’t anticipated when planning on building.

Septic has been covered over last week.  We now have flat land again.  Time to reseed until I figure out landscaping ideas.

Our septic system has been filled in last week. We now have flat land again. Looking forward to planting native edible landscape with trees, bushes and wildflowers to restore the habitat. Booooo to grass.
