Because of the New Years holidays not so much progress had been made nevertheless the facade was almost finished. The front door is now being made and the material for the two cudes that stick out of the facade had arrived. Looking forwards to next week to see all this hopefully in place.

The first layer of the facade boarding was painted with Osmo in four colors, each corresponding to one zone and dominated by the high side lights at each corner of the house. The four colors are red, yellow, blue and geen. The red cedar will weather to a gray color leaving a hint of color in the joint. The design idea is not so much to create a strong expression with the colors, no instead only subtle accents in place where one wouldn’t expect color to reside, such as these joint or the edges of the shelfs in the interior.P1450495_DxOaa P1450511_DxOaa P1450518_DxOaa P1450521_DxOaa

The substrate boarding has been installed and the first impression is that the house look as an exact, but enlarged, copy of the model we made. Also the roof is now fully completed and the seamlessness of the FRP finish looks perfect in contrast to the red cedar wood finish of the walls. Als the canopy above the entrance was being installed. Initially designed in galvanized steel it was executed in stainless steel to reduce labor cost.
