Week 4 - No progress, still too cold

Unfortunately, no progress was made again this week — the weather was just too cold. Kyle (the builder) gave me an update about the SIPs wall panels (see my overview post for a brief introduction to SIPs), explaining that the panels are now in production and should be ready in a few weeks. There’s a lot to do between now and then: pour the concrete and put up the frame so the panels can be hung into place when they arrive.

We have to be careful about pouring the concrete in the cold because the concrete slab will serve as the finished floor, and the texture of the surface of the concrete could be comprised by the cold. The good news is that the weather seems to be warming up. Let’s hope that it stays warm and doesn’t snow!
