Whitepoint Update

Things are progressing well at the Whitepoint Resort Lodge project – we are finished at the main entry, almost complete on the interior (just the stair treads to do), and are working our way through the waterside trellis.  Speaking of the water, I guess the surf was unbelievable late last week.  Our crew jumped in, and took a pounding, but managed to make it out in one piece.  We may have to set up a “board cam”…

Max and the crew at J.W. Lindsay have asked us to prepare two mantles and some interior columns from reclaimed barn timbers  – for us joinery geeks, there are some English Tying Joints in these hand-hewn timbers.  I’ll post some photos as soon as I can.  In the meantime, check out the amazing wrought-iron work by the crew at Steve’s ironworks, in Maitland (Lun. Co), NS.  Things are moving quickly all over the site, but the quality of the work everywhere is amazing!  Check out the paint job on the exposed steel – not a drop on our pine timbers!

Here is how things looked with the timber framing yesterday afternoon – let us know what you think.
