A couple of photos showing progress on shingling the west wall of the engine house yesterday (Saturday, November 26th).

I am wondering if any thoughts have been given to heating the new Engine House? It would be better for any of the three occupants, if they did not have to worry about freezing up.

Yes, a heating system for the Engine House - with a direct connection for its occupants - is planned.

when is that window opening in the east wall going to get moved so that the shingling can continue?

Stewart has been plugging away on the West wall. He is to the point where he has to cut almost every single shingle.

The west wall shingle work was completed Monday afternoon, Feb 20th.   The staging was removed during the clean up on Tuesday the 21st.  Photos will be posted on the WW&F FB page.

Fred and Randy spent a good bit of time cleaning up on the west side of the engine house after the staging was removed.  The area looks much better and the photo on the FB page is the first view of the west side after the clean up.  To reward the crew, everyone took a break to enjoy Fred's (belated) birthday party in the Percival House at lunchtime.
