Howard cabin--Phase 1

Never have we been more excited to see sledgehammers and flying chinking! Timber & Stone began dismantling the Howard cabin yesterday, and already the shakes (shingles) are gone, and much of the chinking and part of the chimney has been removed.

Each log is being carefully labeled (see photos) to ensure proper placement as it is being rebuilt. Today's visiting school group may not get to see the Marine schoolhouse...but they're being treated to a once-in-a-lifetime alternative: seeing the inner workings of a log cabin being taken apart!!!

Keep following the blog for more updates as they happen. Our contractors are working quickly, so expect rapid progress!
