Prepping the site for the ship.
Michah Electric and our water level. The water level is an ancient tool and super precise over any distance.
The crossbars held the blued panels in place.
Carveouts were carefully made to keep the factory attachpoints available.
Screws were added so the crossbars would apply weight in the upper portion and then press down to create a solid glue joint to the wall.
The doors were a project in and of themselves. The crossbar braces were held in place by tying ropes to the contaner attachment points and pulling them down and into place.
Truckers knots are the standard tie off, they can be loosly put in place and then synched up to apply pressure.
Once the glue was dried the 'no screw areas' were painted orange
Hard rubber mats were added to the floor as a vibration dampener for travel and as an insulator.
The support ribs went in.
Ribs were mortised and then screwed together
The deiling elements were made with laser cut plexiglass. The LED lights were hand stitched on through lase cut holes
4 layers of insulating paint were used on the outside, This is the first layer.
This is four layers in.
The entry doors take their inspiration from the sunsets here.
The insulation was covered with fire retardant RFP
The main control area was backed with plywood so that we could freely mount additional in this area.
Bill Clark, Lighting Director. Bill did an amazing job of writing a custom lighting controller from scratch.
Aise Born, Exterior Painting
Experiments went on with painting on the interior mirrors in order to paint in 3 dimensions
The levels of complexity were fantastic. However, in the end the glass was wiped clean. An experiment for another ship perhaps.
