Korinji kick-off

This past weekend, March 20-21, saw the beginning of the 2010 construction season at Korinji. With the snow gone, we were able to closely inspect our completed substructure to see how it weathered the final part of winter. The verdict: no movement whatsoever, and everything remains rock-solid. After some final tweaking of our deck bracing, we're now ready to lay down the deck plates and start framing walls. Measuring the nearly 70-foot long structure, we found the width at the north end to be 29 feet, 8 inches. At the south end: 29 feet, 7.5 inches. Not too bad!

Our next construction dates are April 23-25. After taking delivery of materials on that Friday, we'll need our usual dedicated volunteers to come up on Saturday and Sunday. Now, especially, we need people with basic construction or carpentry skill sufficient to frame our simple (but large) structure with direction from the managers. If you're one of these people, please join us for one or all of the coming work weekends! With each work weekend now, our structure gets higher...

The updated calendar of construction dates can be found on the Korinji site here.
