thermal mass wall

“Alla faccia della pioggia”

Major progress was made at the Solar Passive Greenhouse this week, despite the rainy weather.

The top of the thermal mass wall was enclosed with metal plates (that resemble the shape of shark’s eggs). The barrels were covered with gravel to maximize the wall’s heat absorption.

We fabricated a new table for the produce weighing station using pieces from the scrap pile.

We also welded handrails to help us climb the barrel steps at the back of the building. These new handrails give better access to the operable windows at the top of the thermal mass wall.
