Silver Beach Cabin Update

In spite of record cold and snow, construction continues on the first of two cabins at Silver Beach. The electrical rough-in is completed, the plumbing rough-in is complete and wall insulation is nearly complete.  With below zero temps, windows will be in place the last weekend of February.  Then, with heat staying in the building, interior work can begin. Sheetrock and wood ceiling boards are next.  A list of the approximate dates and tasks are listed below.  Gather a team of friends and come for a few days to work. We will feed and house you, and provide leadership in the projects.  Call ahead for details and tools that may be necessary.  Scott or Matt at camp 218-768-2610 or Bruce in the Twin Cities 651-208-5776.
