Summer activity has been buzzing around the BUILD World Headquarters. Interspersed among travels and training, we’ve been working hard both in the office and out in the field.

The BUILDblog turns a whopping 6 years old this month. Our mission remains the same (and we’re still having fun).

The Madison Park Remodel is in the throes of framing. The second floor is built, the first floor is sheathed, and the volume is starting to take shape.

Team Build and part of Team SPD spent some time in San Francisco for the CreativeLIVE launch back in June. It was a satisfying to see our finished design and cabinetry work in space and in use. Our recent wrap up of the project is chronicled in a robust technical trilogy.

Every month or so, Team BUILD heads out to the job site to check on construction progress on any given project. Earlier this month, we met on site in Queen Anne to hash out some of the final details. Check our Facebook page for regular photo updates.
