On the Way to Retirement Dept:

 

Last spring my darling baby sister, who is part of a "beautification" program for fair city of La Pine, Oregon asked me to design a concrete block restroom(s) for their Frontier Heritage Park.  No problem...I was glad to do it.  Then after all the bids were in she says, "You would be the perfect volunteer to ramrod this project, brother dear".  After some additional arm twisting, I volunteered to be project manager.  That was in August.

 

Now a few months later and 50-60 degrees colder we are setting the Built-up Beam.  More pictures to follow

Pretty impressive. I know it's just a public restroom but it looks like it is going to be beautiful!

Doing the roof sheathing the last two days.  Slow (Jerry he's 70 years old and on the roof mostly) and Slower (that'd be me and mostly on the ground cutting and shoving sheets of plywood up to the roof).  Oh do I ache at the end of the day!

Today's tip about CMU's:  We used a needle gun to knock off concrete spills on the CMU walls followed by a 3000 lbs. pressure washer for final clean up.  Walls look great now.  Friday we are having the floor resurfaced professionally after last Fall's spalling.  Saturday is the La Pine Crab Feed (not to be missed).

From the front, you'd hardly know it was a concrete building.  Wonderful log work camouflage!

Still not finished...but very, very close.  Paving the ADA "Van Accessible" parking next and ADA striping.....then Final inspection.  Gotta hang signs.  Pictures to follow when done.

Still waiting on paving.  Maybe today, maybe not.  Will check as I go through La Pine on Sunday as I head for Burning Man (for a week).  Signs and art work done and need to be hung.  Hope to have this wrapped up by middle of September.  Pics to follow.
