This spring we've been watching some new construction in town.

This building is being constructed by students from Fleming College in Haliburton. It is a sustainable design and construction class taught by our builder Pat and so I assume they are using as many products as possible that fall under the category of  "sustainable".

The roof was built on the ground as this is a much safer building practice especially when teaching students some building skills.

Today Pat called to let me know the roof was being hoisted into place. It went very smoothly and in just a few hours they had both roof sections secured to the walls.

This building once complete will house a rental facility for canoes and kayaks on the York River. 

Hope to see you up here this summer enjoying a paddle on the river.
