Todays progress:

First layer of skin complete and weatherproofed on both the long ‘L’ and small ‘L’ constructions

The second layer of skin is starting to go up!

The skin sheets have been CNC’d, sanded down and glued together.

The final process before taken on-site involves weather-proofing the skin by coating it in oil.
