Weekly Update: A Special Visitor, More bathroom work, Laundry room

This past week we've been working on more finishing touches in the Earthship.  We moved a bed and other furnishings into the guest bedroom, put on doors, painted our master bathroom, and I built our family bathroom vanity and a laundry room space.  On Thursday, Brian from the Earthship Biotecture crew (our carpenter during the build) stopped by with his girlfriend Swift and dog and stayed the night.  So great to see you Brian!!
   This weekend we installed our bathroom faucets, I worked on the bifold doors to the laundry room, Chad added some top door locks to keep one side of our french doors stationary.  We began to drywall the family bathroom, and would have continued with that if it hadn't been 55 degrees today... which lead to an impromptu cement mixing!  I was excited because we needed to finish the top of our master bathroom bottle wall and the top of the Yager wall in the kitchen so we can paint.  I also packed out more of the pantry.  Toward the end, however, I was reminded about how I'm glad we're taking a break from cement!

Good morning!  6:30am Chad, Brian, Courtney

Love the weekends with our new stove with a skillet built in!
Doors made when the crew was here finally installed in the POM (power organizing module) closets.

My laundry-room project, before...




Bifold doors to cover the WOM (water organizing module) and the laundry baskets coming soon

Guest bedroom (the sunshine room).  Walls will be plastered in the spring.
