The return of Artur, and the south wall rises


Artur, who was the lead carpenter on the Greenest Garage in Chicago, is back on the project of building the main house. 

Artur- looking a little colder than he did last summer

The south wall of the building will be mostly steel and glass.  To provide a nailer for the beam covering and for the mounting plates we re-used some of the 100-year old lumber.  It turned out to work even better than modern lumber because of its thicker dimensions, and fit into the beam almost perfectly.
