Das Build has introduced us to many extremes. Through this project, we have enjoyed extreme excitement from launching the project, to receiving and erecting steel, to sealing the roof, and to the most recent installation of windows. We have also endured extreme patience while receiving truckload after truckload of engineered fill for our foundation, anticipating the imminent arrival of windows, and currently waiting for Bell Canada to create and install the new telephone connection they decided we need. Through all of these extremes, we never expected to be subjected to extremely cold temperatures. From a ridiculously brisk walk, here is the view of what happens outside of Das Build when the wind chill dips below -40 °C and exposed skin can freeze in less than 5 minutes.
(Spoiler Alert: Absolutely nothing.)
