15/11/21 – 19/11/21



Monday – 15/11/21

Cladding continues on the east side, door reveal and corner.
Heat mat Birch Ply panel covers started to be prepped: cut to size and coated with HR prof.

Tuesday – 16/11/21

Cladding on the east and north side.
2nd water butt was attached to the building and the installation of birch ply panels continued…

Wednesday – 17/11/21

We finished the cladding of full height boards to all external outer walls, moved on to cladding the courtyard which so far had been half completed.
Heating panel covers were installed and fixed to walls/ceilings.

Thursday – 18/11/21

Continued to clad the courtyard.

Friday – 19/11/21

Completed the courtyard cladding as well as finishing the last couple of decking boards. Tidied and swept the decking and it was very satisfying to see it completed. It’s our favourite room in the house and with that, all the cladding on Nest house is done!
To finish the day we applied a mastic seal to all the door reveals.



A note from Studio Bark

No Building As Usual is an ambitious student build project running for 10 weeks over the summer of 2021. The programme addresses the climate emergency, diversity in the built environment professions, and the need for cross-industry collaboration.

Many thanks to blog and NBAU project collaborator NMITE
