Gulf Island Building.


Well, I almost ran out of wood to go on the stairwell wall before it got too dark to see very well.

So, in spite of not wanting to , I did spend a couple of hours on the table saw and planer getting the next batch prepared. Still need to do the dadoes which will be in the morning.

I'm going to need to get very creative with the scaffolding inside the stairwell...every time a section of wall gets covered I can no longer nail anything to the wall to carry any more scaffold.

I can for sure see where you will need to get creative with your scaffolding especially since the stair well is curved. Getting up and down getting materials, moving the scaffold, getting down to cut and getting back up is tiring to say the least. I really do feel for you buddy, that was really hard even back when we were younger.

I'll send my lil misses over.





When she says 'jump', I don't ask 'How high?', I ask 'How long do you want me to stay up?'...

It isn't likely that you will find architects of this caliber doing square boxes.
as a carpenter they look like so much fun to build, as a person I can only feel some people have to much money. timothy

That snowfall was two winters ago. We got a total of 4 feet that year, totally unprecedented for this island. At least in living memory.

Somehow....I just knew you would have the answer.

I'll get the missus out to give the instructions!

Can you even imagine having the kind of money it must have taken to have a house built by FLLW, PLUS Bruce Goff, PLUS Bart Prince???

It took 5 years to build the Price house, and a whole team of the very best craftsmen were employed for it.

Just look at that desk for example...unbelievable!

At the top of the stairwell, there are two different ceiling sections. One is an extension of the master bedroom ceiling - albeit with a wall in the way - and the other is the top of the tower itself.

It was necessary to do the ceiling in cedar before the wall could be finished, so that consumed a considerable amount of time.

Right after sunset the crescent moon was setting. Sorry the pic isn't great, supper was ready and it was a bit rushed.

Can you imagine what it would cost today to have one of their homes built.
