The late afternoon light cast a warm glow on Rocklin Hose Co. No. 1. Painting and signage are complete. A bench and light post welcome visitors.
My brief visit for this photo was rewarded with the opportunity to ring the firehouse bell! Thanks David!
Work continues on the interior where a replica office is being constructed from a photo. The hose cart is not yet in it’s new/old home.
The firehouse exterior is looking good with painting and signage complete.
The existing sidewalk was extended with a new pour that reaches the two firehouse doors. Trim has also been added to the large door which provides access to the large bay.
Look closely. There’s a mechanism to ring the bell!
Just a little paint and the exterior will be complete!
The siding is almost complete – just the front remains to be buttoned up.
Sample body and trim colors
More progress on siding installation. At least 2 sides are done. I didn’t look at the back, so there are either one or two sides to go.
There has been great progress since the previous blog post. The slate roof looks to be complete. Siding is being installed. Note on the siding are a couple of paint samples for the body and trim. A door and windows have been installed too.

MS Clark roofing is installing the slate roofing tile today. Late last week the bell tower was lifted and secured into place. The bell has also been installed!
There is a person and a bell in the tower
The Genie lift is used to bring the slate tiles up
Real slate with two pre-drilled holes. The slate looks much lighter in color once installed
Appropriate that we’re celebrating our country’s history today.
The framing on the right end of the roof appears to be complete
The left side looks like it is ready for plywood sheets
