Many camps are left to their own devices during the winter. With no one to shovel the snow off the roof, they need to be able to take a heavy load. This one couldn’t. Tom snowshoed in with the owner to get a preliminary look at the damage when a neighbor called to let the owner know what had befallen his camp. Or, rather, that his camp had befallen.
The tractor earned its keep helping to pull down the remaining, structurally unsound structure. Burning the debris required a special burn permit from the town and a multiple-day process of monitoring the results.
We were also hired to do the exterior rebuild on the two-story camp. The project included cedar shakes and a standing seam roof with an additional roof join over the entrance.
