The framing for the clipped gable is coming together. Lots of custom cuts!
Well, the quote is really “Hold the vision, TRUST the process” but the photo clearly shows that the building of the trusses is coming along quite nicely.
Fans of Star Trek will recognize a plywood version of the Borg ship!
Framing for the walls and interior appears to be complete. Plywood sheets are being installed.
While I was away on vacation what should appear? A solid foundation and 3 walls.
It’s been a long road and I can clearly hear the hearts singing of the people who have dreamed of this for YEARS. Well done!
Hooray! There are signs of activity at the firehouse site.
While the firehouse location remains relatively unchanged, lots of progress has been made in the surrounding area.
Pictured below is the area to the north of the firehouse location. This large, relatively flat area is surrounded by a new split rail fence with two arbors marking entry points. While I don’t know the intended use, it seems like a perfect area for the display of historical artifacts that grow character with the weather. You can also see the fresh concrete, asphalt and striping that was dirt and forms back in October.
I had the bright idea to pick a couple of reference points to shoot from so that the photos would have a consistent view and angle as the project progressed. Great idea except the parking space stripe and the sidewalk barrier that were my reference points are now GONE! I will have to find something more permanent but I’m not sure what that is. Heavy equipment is on site now. Piles of dirt. Asphalt torn out. New concrete poured as well as forms for more concrete.
