Internal Framing – Summer 2014

The local construction team specializes in framing and once you see the finished product, you’ll notice their attention to detail. As of October 2014, the Shipping Container Cabin – Project Octopod has been completed. Building officials have signed off on the inside, outstanding is the landscaping but we’re now in winter so it’s a matter of waiting until the snow melts before we raise the grade.

From main deck looking into main entrance. Walls of shipping containers will be cut creating entrances into rooms.
