The stonework and roofing is nearly complete, leaving the window installation as the next major step. Only half of the building has yet to be sealed against the rain. This third floor picture shows the installed utilities along the ceiling. One of the three sections of green roof will be accessible by a door instead of just ladders. Installation of roof insulation will be completed in the following week or two. The view from a future lounge. Roof insulation can be seen in the on site storage area. Electric and water supplies are also kept there. Mike Boyd cites this storage area as a major help in streamlining the construction's progress.
