As of this week we have completed the installation on our top plates. I would like to start installing our rough cut beams but due the weather I'm holding off until it dries a bit. Instead we skipped a step and started installing our aluminum cans and mud into the tire voids to form a straight wall. You can see in the pictures how the cans are put into place by hand. Each void will have 3 cans packed around with mud. Neither of the cans will be touching one another. This has greatly added to our insulation and is keeping the inside under the tarp much warmer.
