Well, as stated in a previous blog, the framing of the new bear trap did start this past Monday. With that said though, the framing won’t be done by Christmas. Instead, it’ll actually be done much, much sooner…as in by THIS FRIDAY!!! So I guess technically, it will be done by Christmas. The shell of the building has pretty much gone up overnight. The crew is working so hard it’s unreal! They work when it’s sunny, when it’s raining and would probably work even if it were snowing. Check out the pictures below to see the progress.
No lie, all of the above was built in two days!! As you can see it’s a two-story building which when finished will have a nice wrap around porch where we’ll have rocking chairs during the summer. As for the dining hall, of course it’s not new, but with additional campers and staff it does need to be renovated. Before any walls could be knocked down, the offices needed to be cleared out. Below are pics of the empty offices and a short video clip showing the dining hall as it looks right now.
No walls have been knocked down yet, but they have started building the porch extension…take a look.
These days it’s pretty much impossible to visit camp without seeing some kind of construction happening. Keep checking back for more updates!
