Team member Claire Griffin is here to update us on Week 8 of constructing Ecohabit!
There is nothing more beautiful than rays of sunlight spilling through the windows of your home on a crisp morning, with the sun rising and bringing about a new day. NanaWall Systems, an operable glass wall manufacturer, helps bring this breathtaking image to Ecohabit. The team behind NanaWall has donated its incredibly innovative product to our home, and will help the home feature natural light by taking advantage of California’s temperate climate. The NanaWall glass wall is not only elegant and energy efficient, but also breaks an indoor/outdoor barrier by creating a seamless transition between the two spaces.
Our customized NanaWall operable glass wall system measures 9’2” across and 6’10” tall and is Energy Star approved, hurricane approved, and weather resistant.
Our student team has shifted to become an alumni team as Ecohabit team members who have recently graduated stay committed to the project and have been helping build the house. Ecohabit members who recently graduated Stevens returned to their alma mater to see this great project come to fruition. Every day, team members congregate at the build site overlooking the beautiful NYC skyline to help build the house.
Our team has made a lot of progress so far and has demonstrated a work ethic that could only come from Stevens students. The ‘shell’ of the house is almost completed with our walls constructed and our iconic roof in place.
