In the last 3 weeks activity has jumped on our Zero Energy Ready Home. Getting "out of the ground" is always laborious, particularly if the weather doesn't cooperate. Luckily for us, San Juan Island is in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains and as such, has a relatively dry climate, averaging only 20 inches of rain a year. By comparison, Seattle gets 37 inches of rain. In the Pacific Northwest, weather is affected by not only mountains and sea, but by microclimates which can produce different climate conditions over a relatively small area.
With good weather and longer days, the crew has been busy. In the 3 weeks since the last blog post, framing has begun in earnest. Seeing the progress has been exciting as we watch La Pedrera come to life.
