Here is Chris showing us what our doorway trim will look like. The wood is salvaged from the same reclaimed Douglas Fir timbers that make up our timber frame. Tom Healy (timber frame guy) was able to mill off beautiful old growth wood from the sides of the timbers. We hope to use up every board-foot for interior trim, baseboards, cabinets and book shelves.
This heavy duty iron washer and nut were salvaged from used timbers. They bolt the bottom of the loft stair landing to an iron rod that holds the entire assembly up.
In stacks up in the loft, waiting installation, is our recycled Doug Fir wood flooring for the great room and kitchen. This product comes from Duluth Timbers, the company that salvages old growth wood from all over the country. As you may recall, our timbers came from the City of Portland piers, from an old school in Seattle, and from a fish factory warehouse and pier in western Washington.
post for our loft stair from a battered hunk of scrap wood that supported the piles of
timbers while in transport from Montana!
Looking at our garage, our PV panels are continuing to collect electrons. The construction crew has been powering all their power tools using our PV system, and they haven't had to recharge our batteries using a generator at all, despite snowy days and the short hours of winter sunlight.
