1. Log Cabin Project. We are in the process of building a 24 x 24 log cabin kit building. This involves traditional wall and roof/rafter/truss framing along with notching and assembly of prefabricated logs. Door and window installation will be involved as well. We will also be building bunk-beds and installing carpet in the Spring.
2. S.S. Stargazer Project. In the Spring of 2018 we will be building a floating raft that is 30 ft by 30 feet and built on commercial dock floats. This will involve typical deck framing and railing construction.
3. Gym Ceiling renovations. We will be tearing out the masonite and insulation in the gym ceiling and replacing it with new sprayed-in foam insulation and perforated metal siding. This is a demolition and renovation project requiring work approximately 25 feet above the floor on scaffolding or a lift.
4. Painting of various buildings. We have to paint various buildings on a regular basis, both exterior and interior painting.
