The beautiful final product. What I learnt during this process (aside gaining a greater knowledge of construction) was that working with other people can be very difficult. It's important to know when to be assertive and when to step back. Also, when to let the client be in control and when to draw the line. I'm proud of what we achieved.

After a hard day's digging, we finished the foundations for the construction. Being outside digging and throwing worms around was a WELCOME break from staring at a screen working for my portfolio.

Paul's installation expertise helped us to build an appropriate roof frame. The wood for this frame was bought especially for the project, which made me wonder whether we were missing the point of upcycling waste. I think that this marks the point where our desire to complete the project within a time limit overtook our desire to save the world.

We spent many hours deliberating over designs, arranging pallets in different configurations in order to hopefully please the client. The above photo shows some sketched elevations, drawn to aid discussion.
