Weekend Green Roof Workshop

Today we got up a bit late - the workshop started at 10 o`clock. But we still got a lot done. First we had to get the EPDM in the right position, and glued to the skylight at the top. The EPDM stretches easily, which is a great help but also makes work sometimes difficult. We had to pull the EPDM back up because it stretched too much at the skylight:

We put some geo-textile across the dome, but difficult to walk on it because it became very slippery. We should have fixed the skylight plexiglas before covering with any geo-textile, would have been easier. The geo-textile was then weighted down with bags of earth.

In the lower parts we choose to work without geo-textile, because it would slide down and anyway, the earth has no sharp stones. We managed to get one valley finished, the bags are heavy but work well.

We are fixing the EPD with some pieces of oak on the outer walls, with a enough material for the valleys. Then we cut the EPDM along the outside of the oak. The top part of the wall will later be covered by titan-zinc alloy sheets.

Tom Rijven is inspecting the windows. They are now taped from the inside and insulated, so we can start making the last clay layers around the windows tomorrow.

We will not finish the green roof tomorrow, so more workshops will be necessary... :-)
