Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
48. Insulation, vapour barrier and drywall are added to the clubhouse
We decided to deviate from the
and insulate only the ceiling of the clubhouse. Because
the building could only be legally used from May to October, we reckoned
that insulated walls would likely not be necessary. Our planning called
for drywall joints to be covered by wood battens rather than conventional
mudding and taping. This was a practical solution that would allow us to
insulate the walls later on if we so chose. These simple battens offered
us both economy and flexibility in terms of interior finish. We could use
them to achieve anything from a rustic to a stately look. I hauled the
ceiling insulation from Winnipeg
and installed it with help from a fellow member. Another member helped
me attach the vapour barrier. We passed inspection easily. I borrowed a
member's trailer and hauled the drywall for the ceiling from Selkirk
to the park (three loads). A skilled member with a drywall jack then took
the lead and gave a small group of us necessary guidance as we tacked all
the sheets to the ceiling in just one weekend. I drove the rest of the
screws over the next couple of days. Near the end of June, Kenroc
Building Materials Co. Ltd.
of Winnipeg delivered a large order of
drywall for the walls. After I added sound insulation to the washroom walls,
a small group of us began drywalling that area. And then...
I resigned from the
board of directors effective July 1, 2014. I didn't do any more construction work
after that. Ask me why.
These photographs from my personal collection were taken in June 2014.
