Continuing to Poke Holes in Things

The research team has spent the past few weeks constantly shifting between testing and building which keeps things exciting around here. With the floors for the two test buildings in place, the team spent about three weeks preparing each piece of wood for the walls and ceiling. Over 700 pieces of wood were cut, labeled, drilled (4000+ holes), and stacked. For a while, the team operated each day under the fabrication pavilion like a well-oiled machine. Each team member had their job: book-matching boards, clamping templates, drilling holes, stacking finished pairs. By the end of those weeks, the team could prep an entire wall (~80 boards, 400 holes) in a little over a day!

Stay tuned for mass timber walls!
