Quonset Hut Love Affair
We are in love again. This time with a building. But not just any building. A quonest hut – which looks like a boat turned upside down. And once we learned how to spell the word “quonset”, it sealed the deal. This quonset was built in the 1950’s, presumably from the surplus of huts left over from WWII. It’s been a Forest Service Fire Crew building, storage building, feed store, and now a boathouse. It’s perfect.
Getting it ready for operations this summer has been a larger task than we originally thought. But then again, aren’t most remodel projects that way? The 3 main remodel areas are the new retail store (The Boathouse Shop), the kitchen, and our office. We’re putting the final touches on things as we get ready to open the retail shop May 1st. Very exciting. Here are a few timeline photos of the project.
More updates to come soon!
