It’s now the week after fall break and the 3rd-years are rested up and ready for the next phase of their semester! This week has been all about making sure the students have everything ready for when it’s time to start building.
First, the students had a much-needed conversation about their schedule and budget. They held a pull planning session to start making a schedule for the rest of the semester – will they stick to the schedule? Stay tuned to find out!
Next, the students worked together to get things ready on site by moving all their supplies and the leftover wood from Mrs. Patrick’s Home (last year’s project) to Ophelia’s site.
Over the next couple of days, the students broke down into teams to get the site and their tool trailer ready for when it’s time to build. A few of them focused on locating and shutting off the old water line on site. This team also dug up and capped off the old septic line and removed old tie offs for the trailers previously on site.
Another team worked hard to build the inside of the tool trailer with shelves for all their equipment and individual cubbies for everyone on the team.
The third team measured and cut all the pieces to make batter boards that the 3th-years will use to measure the height of the finished floor of Ophelia’s new home!
All in all, it was a productive week for the 3th-years on site and they are very excited and eager to break ground on Ophelia’s 20K soon! Just look at how excited they are!!!
