Ithaca New York Build – Week 3, Day 13

This is the 3rd and final week with the Earthship Biotecture crew from New Mexico and all of the wonderful apprentices.  I’m pretty sad that it will be over in a week… the camaraderie, teamwork, fun times, and the speed of our house being worked on!  I’ll try to enjoy and take in every moment this week!
