Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
39. Preparing to begin construction on the park's new clubhouse
An aggressive fundraising campaign for Naturist Legacy Park's new clubhouse
had been underway since January. We were pleased to inform members in May
that our funding target had been achieved, and that construction would
proceed. I drew the plans
for our clubhouse. The board estimated that doing this drawing "in house"
may have saved the corporation as much as $2,000. I submitted the plans
along with a building permit application to the RM
in mid-June. As sometimes happens, we encountered unexpected
red tape that caused a considerable delay. I'm grateful to Murray Cutmore,
the RM's Building Inspector/Development Officer, for finding a workable
solution to our issue. Our building
(a public record) was finally issued on August 6th. We immediately
began site preparations. Trees and stumps were removed from the building
area. The wood pool enclosure fence was detached from its support posts
and laid on the ground. Once the posts were removed, I used my circular
saw to trim the uneven edge of the sun deck so that it would better align
with the new clubhouse. Each section of the wood fence was then lifted
upright, placed on the edge of the sun deck and temporarily braced. The
wood fence would be permanently removed once the south wall of the new
clubhouse was raised into place. With site preparations completed and with
copies of my clubhouse plans printed, we were now ready to begin Naturist
Legacy's Park's biggest construction project!
