The Washington State School for the Blind Learning Independence for Today and Tomorrow, or LIFTT, program teaches life skills to blind and visually impaired young adults with a goal of achieving independent living. Lund Opsahl were recently on-site to review the ongoing wood-framed construction. Featuring mass timber in the form of DLT, tongue-in-groove decking, and conventional plywood sheathing over TJI joists, the Life Skills Center is a celebration of wood framing, and provided ample opportunity for creative and collaborative detailing with Mahlum Architects. We’re excited to see this project come together!
