This past weekend marked the first of five construction weekends for Small Town Studio.
Small Town Studio is comprised of full-time graduate students who live and attend school in Manhattan, Kansas, and this poses some interesting problems when it comes to the construction phase. Mainly, “When will we actually have time to build this thing??” The answer: On the weekends.
It has been a huge undertaking to coordinate everyone’s schedules, equipment, materials, and tools to make the construction phase possible. But on Friday we got off to a great start. Here is an update on our progress so far, in pictures and captions:
Friday, October 24th
Saturday, October 25th
Sunday, October 26th and Monday, October 27th
Overall the weekend was a great success! Though work moved slower than we had estimated (as most construction work does) we learned a lot through the process of working together on site. We’ll be in Eureka every weekend from now until Thanksgiving to really push though this project before the winter weather rolls in, so be on the lookout for frequent process updates!
