Week 3 saw the Insect Hotel rise-up from raw timbers to an upright structure - a great moment. Luckily, we had a couple of load testers to immediately make sure it was suitable for grubs to climb up!
|1. Preparing the ground |
|2. Building the frames|
|The timbers used were the|
ones Gatton School had
cut in preceding weeks
|3. Laying flag stone foundations|
|4. There she rises! With two eager |
climbers waiting in the wings
|5. Bang on level...|
The timbers used to be a fence that passed across the site - a priority for us is to re-use as much as possible.
The team on the day was Maria (with the level), Gerard (with the sideburns) Benji with the yellow coat and Dominic with the smile! Jenny is on the camera and that's me in the hat!
