First full construction day a success

First full day of construction on the Mant Farm completed.  Thanks to everyone who came out and busted their humps all day today, couldn’t have done it without you!

Work today consisted of constructing Facade Side A (tunnel section):

  • chalk lined where scaffolding will be
  • marked out where all grommets go
  • marked out where to cut tunnels
  • rolled glue over all tunnel lines
  • glued patches of canvas to all grommet locations
  • cut out tunnel sections
  • set a bunch of grommets (not all yet)
  • utility knife surgery
  • applied 2 layers of old salmon fish net to facade
  • attached fish net with ring tool (not done)
  • framed entire facade in rope including 2 vertical members (this is for keeping the shape constrained)
  • rolled, folded and stuffed into my car…
