The Smallwood team is working hard to get our occupancy permit and complete a bunch of miscellaneous things as we enter the final push.

Last week the beautiful Bainbridge Island wide-board cedar was installed in the stair tower and final room paneling (for the entrance) is about to begin.  

Our composting toilets have begun final install with Phoenix – and our water purification system installed – and passed the water test with flying colors!

Another exciting milestone – Rick from Knauff performed a blower door test – testing for air leakage – even though there are still some areas that need sealing – and the house already performed significantly beyond code – and nearly at Passive House standards to begin with.  We are confident that once fully buttoned up that the house will exceed the Passive house standard !

Outside Clemente’s team installs planters – and this week gets ready to put in the first application of Earth Measure pavers by Cold Spring.
