Rachel hard at work peeling back the insulation on the wall where our new plumbing pipes will go. Related: insulation works really well.
Concrete being poured to make stairs. Little did we know that the next day would bring a heavy snowstorm to Portland, pausing construction - and pretty much everything else in town - for a few days!
I love everything about this giant blade! The colors, the sawdust around it, the tiny "fringes" still attached to the piece of wood, the way it looks extremely dangerous (don't read too much into that...).
It's been a while since I posted a wide shot from my trusty spot on the cement floor. Holy wow. Sure it looks chaotic, dare I say 'messy,' but it's a construction zone, after all. Although I've never thought of it before, the guts of a building are just like our own innards; not traditionally pretty, but strangely beautiful in their functionality. It's when I see shots like this that I really notice the progress that's been made. For reference, below is the scene on Day One.Daylight by Aan***
