Pt. 8: Final Interior Touches and Reedbed System

The climate cabin project is nearly complete! In this episode the focus is almost entirely on the interior touches. Head of construction Mike Shellman runs through the utilitarian red cedar countertops, cabinets, and backsplash while project leader Mikael Maynard demos the multi-purpose shelving that also serves as a "room" divider. The duo also reveal a two reedbed treatment systems (and one overflow mulch pit), one catching the water from the kitchen and bathroom sinks and the other catching waste from the cabin's compost toilet - all through network of pvc piping. Shellman wraps up the episode walking viewers through the cabin's framed and screened porch. Be sure to tune in to Episode 9! This will be the last installment in this series where Mike and Mikael will reveal the entire project cost!
