With the May 1st as the deadline for the SPARC to reach completion, a flurry of activity has surrounded the new house for the last several weeks.
The greenhouse has been added. Windows have been added to the south, west, and east walls to allow for maximum sunlight and a good aesthetic look. A wood floor was installed to give the greenhouse a patio/deck look.
Siding was added to the north, east, and west walls to add protection and to give the house a sharp look.
Water has been hooked up and (despite only a few leaks that were dealt with handily) works perfectly.
Carpet has been installed on the stairs and second level and gives it a nice warm feel.
Finally, a last blower door test was ensure of the passive nature of the house. Doug is using a thermal camera in the pic to scan for any leaks that may still be present.
Final touches and a cleaning are all that remains before the SPARC will be open for use.
