Log erection begins!

Construction on the log portion of the (re)source pavilion started this past weekend, despite the often torrential downpours and gale force winds. The secondary columns were all raised and 3 of the 4 beam members installed. The main 'king post' and the main roof joists will be erected next week, and weather permitting, the roof clad. A big thank you to all the volunteers who braved the cold and rain.

Pavilion concrete is poured

The (re)source pavilion concrete was poured this past weekend. The pavilion is being built by a group of volunteers, primarily architecture students from the GTA area, as well as several local green building enthusiast. The work completed this weekend included the cutting of about a dozen trees, both elm and juniper, as well as the drilling of the post holes for the wood screen fence. The threaded rods were installed in the Durisol wall, the last two courses of block installed and the concrete poured. The erection of the log structure begins next weekend.
