Week 12

With three weeks until Pig Roast, we are moving quickly out here at Mrs. Patrick’s Home!  We started off the week with the rough carpentry­ framing the front porch of the house.

Rough carpentry also built formwork for an elevated concrete pad. This pad will serve as the first tread of the porch stars and will be poured next week.

On the side stoop of the house, Paul and our teaching assistant, Alex Therrien, installed a metal awning over the door.

The Enclosure team crossed a huge milestone off their list this week! All the siding on the house is complete. We are all very satisfied with the color and material that we chose.

At the end of the week, we had a discussion to choose a “pop” color for the house. We all came forth with ideas about a color palette, and presented them to our guest juror Elena. We also got her feedback on which skirt detail to choose. Stay tuned next week to find out the color palette and skirt!
