The FRP is applied in several layers and is almost finished except for the top-coat. Inside the insulation for the floor has been installed and work on the boarding is in progress.
The roof will be finished in Fiber Reinforced Plastic, a type of water barrier often used in Japan for balconies. But also to make bath tubs and yachts. To satisfy the level of fire protectiveness required the substrate is to be in two layers of gypsum board and the top-coat also needs to be fire resistant. At this stage the substrate gypsum board is being installed. Because of expected rainy weather the carpenter has made this light weight temporary cover to protect the materials against moist. Actually this “glass house” like roof space landscaped with the four triangles of the high side light, is quite beautiful.
The vapour barrier and the foundation insulation were being installed. Also the insulation was being placed between the post of the exterior walls. This is a wood fiber based insulation system developed in Germany. In addition to this soft wood fiber insulation placed between the post there will be an additional 40mm hard pressed exterior insulation. This all will be finished with a wood slat finish with a ventilated cavity. The slats in the foto with the curved cut-outs will be used to create this ventilated cavity.
