20. Construction continues on the new washroom/shower buildingNaturist Legacy Inc. was fortunate to have a retired plumber among its members. I learned a lot as I and other volunteers helped him do the plumbing for our new washroom/shower building (see the floor plan). More trenching was required to route the water line under the building and beyond to the RV sanitary dump station. A new trench also had to be dug for the electrical cable that would power the pool heater to be installed in 2012. Once these trenches were filled in, I and other volunteers began building the deck that would surround three sides of the washroom/shower building. The two side decks were the first to be completed. Before we could begin the large front deck, CJ Electric Ltd. of Beausejour returned to wire the building and install a temporary 200 AMP circuit breaker panel near where the new clubhouse would eventually stand. I again acted as a labourer on behalf of the park, saving members a couple hundred dollars that would otherwise have been paid to an electrician's assistant. I mounted electrical boxes, pulled and stapled wires, attached light fixtures and did whatever else I could to help. With that task completed, I and others returned to building the large front deck, ramp and steps. I and a fellow director also found time to enclose the interior partition walls. It was well into October when I finished my work on the ramp's railings and balusters. Outside temperatures were just warm enough for my wife to give them a coat of paint. Work on the washroom/shower building would resume the following spring.
