Project On An Island – IV

With the nice weather works are progressing very rapidly. The roof is closed, no more rain inside the house. Not that it rains anyways, we haven’t seen any rain in the last three weeks. Next week we will put the Ruukki metal roof on top. First however we will finish the roof bottom, and we will place the insulation on the outside, and then cover with larch. Zero maintenance, lasts a lifetime.

The outside of the wooden house has been completely wrapped in yellow foil. It looks like plastic, but it isn’t. It is more like a combination of cotton and paper. It makes the house air tight, but damp open. The house breathes and humidity can always leave the house through the walls. No forced ventilation systems in our wooden houses.
