longhouseconstruction153longhouseconstruction155We are closing in on completion of the new building! The windows are in and the ceiling is now finished. Gutters and down spouts were added to the outside. The main beams on the inside received one last cleaning as the building continues to dry out. The most exciting news is that two work parties occurred over the school break where lodge members assisted in the process. The main focuses of the work parties were cleaning the siding material from the old building so it can adorn the new structure. By the second work party we had already begun to clad the front of the longhouse with these ancient wood boards. Work parties will continue this winter as we get ready to host not only the Longhouse's grand opening celebrations but also Section W1-N Conclave.
