This Week in Prototype News

The big blizzard of ’09 temporarily put the kibosh on construction, but we’re back up and running.  The Hemcrete forms have come off of the first floor, Serious Materials windows have arrived, and the roof is moving forward, with horse drawn, local, sustainably harvested hemlock fascia boards from Mountain Works installed this week.

If you’re interested in volunteering for the Nauhaus Prototype Project, please contact Billy.
