|Jana cuts a can for the roof flashing.|
We cut and mounted wooden panels on the inside that are now ready to be encrusted with assemblage art, and we got the roof deck caulked and ready for the heavy duty roof paint that will be the final surface. We had a small crew this time. It was just Royce, Bill and Jana, with a little help on Sunday from their friend Ray. Thanks!
The weather was much better for the July work party. It started out clear, warmed up considerably, and just when you started thinking that it was getting too hot, clouds moved in and it cooled down. This was followed by an afternoon thunderstorm which really cooled things down. The sunsets were beautiful.
|Jana hands a piece of flashing up to Bill on the roof.|
Fabricate and install roof deck railings. - Jana and Royce will do the fabricating of the steel railings.
Get heavy duty roof paint on the upper deck.
Fabricate the permanent ladder that will be used to access the roof deck.
Create assemblage art panels for the inside entries to each of the bays.
Install drywall on the upper part of the walls in the central tower.
The next work party is not scheduled yet. There may not be one in August due to everyone having so much going on. When we do schedule a work party, one of the main components will be an assemblage art workshop. Assemblage is a multimedia process where panels are painted and then cool stuff is glued and/or screwed onto it to create a collage of sorts using durable small objects.

We would really like to do some crowd-source funding via Kickstarter or Indiegogo. If anyone reading this blog has experience setting up a campaign, and would like to help out by coordinating, let us know. We are happy to assist. Royce can edit the video, we can come up with cool incentive gifts for donors at different levels, and all of us who have been involved will promote the campaign wherever we can.
