Project On An Island – IX – Ready!

eco wood house We’re done. The house is ready. This week we finished the last details:

  • listings around windows
  • staircase and balustrade
  • and then there is a long list of all kinds of details that take time and attention.

We received the staircase by special delivery, and shipped it to the island, by boat. Small boat this time.

This staircase is made from ash, and an ash staircase never squeeks.

Installing listings is a lot of work. For each window: take measurements to the millimeter, install, shave of a little, try again… until it fits. This is works for the craft men woodworkers.

The interior walls will be painted with a special product that is damp-open, invisible, and stops the yellowing of the wood. The walls will look the same in five years from now.
