The dance of the construction lifts continued with major interior work. Holsinger framed most of the north end of the building, turning a cavernous space into one with rooms and doorways. Evergreen was busy lining the walls with vapor barrier and insulation, reducing our waiting store of insulation from the mountain it once was. With walls framed and high ceilings covered, the guts of the building — mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire sprinkler systems — could begin to be roughed in, festooning the building with every variety of tube. Most of this interior work continued into the next week. Out in the heat, Evergreen continued to wrap up their exterior work, installing gutters and downspouts that will carry some very large volumes of water away from the massive roof.
