Photos of Naturist Legacy's early success
41. The floor and walls are framed for the new clubhouse
A large load of lumber for the clubhouse was delivered by Home
Hardware and Building Centre
near the end of August. The weather was hot and sticky, which made working
in the sun brutal at times. Despite the heat, we were blessed with just
the right amount of volunteer help for each day of the build. We immediately
began framing the clubhouse floor (see the
). Plywood subflooring came next, and then framing for the walls
began. Because the north and south walls would be 10 feet high and 60 feet
long, we raised them in 12 foot sections. The temporary wood fence positioned
on the edge of the sun deck was removed just before the south wall was
raised into place. Volunteers applied the first coat of paint just as soon
as all the walls were up (protective exterior siding for all buildings
would be the next priority after the clubhouse received it's occupancy
permit). Once the plywood was cut from the door and window openings, I
was able to begin adding the framing required for our windows. The plywood
cutouts from the south-facing windows and door were temporarily tacked
back into place to maintain access control for the pool. A brief delay
in receiving our delivery of truss rafters gave our group of hard-working
volunteers a much-needed rest!
