The Making of Skyhouse (the building)
People and ProcessMany, many people have added their energy to this building already. We couldn't do it without all of their help. But here's the major players:
Coordinators:In 1999 and 2000 Jess and Tony co-coordinated the main construction part of the project. Our building experience is minimal but we're quick to learn with a good blend of confidence and caution.
In 2001 skyhouse hired Roger and Lisa from Big Muddy Construction to coordinate the onsite work on Skyhouse.
Interns: Dancing Rabbit has had a thriving intern program and one of the main areas of learning is natural building. We really couldn't do it all without their help. Special thanks to Karen, Wendy, Jenni, Stephanie, Christina, Tamar, Aaron, Elizabeth, Emily, Scott, Laurel, Sedge and more to come.
Residents and Members: In 2000 Lyzyrd helped coordinate the Skyhouse project for a few months and in 2001 Mark and Brad were dedicate workers on the the Skyhouse site. In 2002 Jane, Erin, Lindsey, Becca, Thomas, Leah, and Betsy have all been a great help as short term residents with Tom, Eric, Mark, and Megan in it for the longer haul.
Solar Electric: Cecil is the electric co for Skyhouse. He set up the panels, batteries, inverter, and did the house wiring and lighting.
