A great few days, and a great place to get to after just 2 weeks on site after the frame went up. This is designed to be an exercise in simple and swift construction that can depend entirely on people who have limited experience in building construction, but instead possess something much more important – resourcefulness, common sense, determination and good humour. With thanks to Alan Matthews, Bernard Twist, Cuffer, Simon and Alfie.
We’ve been a little tardy recently – but now full steam ahead on the studio again with the weather. The building is 2 story, but only ‘occupied’ at first floor – accessed via a bridge from the hillside. The secondary structure fits ‘around’ the primary frame, meaning that the main posts rise through the floor,a nd have clear space around them. The idea that the building hovers in the woodland, in the trees, and the columns are effectively trees straight from the forest. Aiming to have the roof on in a week or so.
