The section house looks amazing. Congratulations to Steve and all involved! I look forward to seeing it in person sometime this summer.

* The last row of coating is now on and the i&w shield has been trimmed around the flashing.  Rolled roofing may go on next week.

* Randy donated a complete system of door rollers: track, clamps, rollers, lags and bolts.  Thanks Randy!

The rolled roofing is all on and the front staging has been removed.  The next step will be to wrap the building in a tar paper style covering.  When the paper is on, the widows go in and the corner boards are set.

The spruce flooring came in today so I hope we can get that installed soon.  When the floor is down we can build the door so the building is sealed to the weather.

Ed,  Thanks for moving some of Brendan's pictures over from the work weekend thread.  A good way to see all the progress  in one location. Looking forward to seeing the spruce floor installed along with door. Thanks again, Fred L. Kuhns

 Hope Stewart was able to finish installing the floor in the section house. Add the oak rails for the hand cars and the door, secure storage.  The BOD will have to look at planning for a section house at Alma or TOM, for a future arts and crafts center.   Fred L. Kuhns

Hi Fred,

Yes, the floor was finished yesterday.  Zack will order lumber for the door soon.  The door will have edge and center bead sheathing like the original WW&F tool house that's near the water tank.

Start

 Stewart, Thanks for the information on the door, look forward to seeing it installed. Oh yes, the paint color on the window trim on the south side really looks great.  Fred L. Kuhns
