“I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.” -Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank couldn’t have said it better. His words hit close to home for our team here at Houses & Barns; perfectly depicting our purpose and enthusiasm for our most recent work with the Great Island Boat Yard. The Boat Yard burned down last November as the result of an electrical fire, destroying the 2,000 square foot building. Since January, our team has been working on both the design and construction of the new timber frame structure.
Now that spring has officially arrived and the warm sunshine has given us a whole new level of energy, our progress has picked up quite a bit. The project is really coming together and has been gaining more supporters and recently was even featured on Channel 6 News: To see the full story, click here
During these past few weeks our crew has been working long hours to get the frame up and the main structure built. We are happy to report that the timber frame structure is now complete, the main walls are framed and sheathed, structural insulated panels are installed on the roof, and we are currently in the process of installing the septic system.
We will keep you posted on the Boat Yard project, as well as others that come along. Don’t forget to check back in with us later this week!
