A fireplace is a great idea.

A lifetime ago I was a Mason's Tender -
Mortar for stone was very stiff - and we laid out the facade  on the floor first.

Others can work on the fly, but in the end our way was quicker and looked better
for us.

Stone would be keeping with the era the museum is trying to portray.

On the third photo of 10/27 there is a white pipe-like structure in the background.  Is that the framework for some sort of tent shelter?

It is indeed the framework for our tent. The Pavilion will replace the need for that tent at Alna Center, as well as a large tent rented for concerts.

As I remember, the pavilion was pretty tall (needed for ship construction).  Will it be rebuilt as high as it was or brought down a little closer to earth?

We discussed that, but not sure if we ever came to a conclusive height. Maybe I should bring that up at the next meeting.

IMHO - keep it as it is.  The space it creates is great and will be better for concert events.

As one who helped take down the pavilion, I agree!!  The spaciousness of the height is one of the attractive features of the pavilion.

As for acoustics, who knows but it probably does not matter outdoors anyway...

There will be quite a little damage and adjustment cutting on the posts.
The posts were not all the same height where it was before as the ground was not completely level, but they were close.

We took out One large trailer load of oak firewood and One half load. This year we cut everything to sixteen inch length, and if we can get the wood splitter out of the garage, I will split some of it. There is some heavy things in the way.

I cut the last 2 trees this morning, ready for Contractor Jeff. The Kubota was cold, and I an thinking the battery is undersized, and would not start. Tried jumping it off of the loader, but no go. I wanted to get the trees out of the way, so I used the loader.



Jeff showed up with his newest acqusition and made quick work of the site.





Jeff set the top soil aside to use as a backer to the gravel pad, and have a slope down to the original elevation.



Looking from the Station. I used the station to block the sun, because my phones camera lens is still scratched.



End of day, stumps are stacked..



As of 3pm Saturday

Looks a bit colder than the last time I was up two weeks ago.

Thanks for the photos Mike.
What–me worry?
