Construction has started

Construction has started! Today we poured the footings for the pool house. This will be a great addition to the property. Lots of activity will be taking place during the next week. Here is the optimistic construction schedule:

Friday, June 27 - Dig basement for Cabin 6, start landscaping around cabins 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, begin grading parking lot

Saturday, June 28 - Frame footings for Cabin 6, continue grading parking lot

Monday, June 29 - Continue grading parking lot and continue landscaping

Tuesday, July 1 - Pour foundation for pool house and footings for Cabin 6

Wednesday, July 2 - Logs are delivered

Thursday, July 3 - Pour foundation for Cabin 6 and floor for pool house, finish landscaping and grading

Friday July 4 through Sunday July 6 - Shut down construction for holiday

That is our optimistic schedule for the next 7 days. However, since we were supposed to pour footings for Cabin 6 today and we haven't even finished digging the basement, and we were supposed to pour the pool house footings at 10:00 AM this morning and the cement truck showed up at 3:00 PM, I am not holding my breath on any of the above schedule.

We will continue to do our best and work with what we are given.

Let me know if you have any questions.

The snow has continued to melt away and the temperatures are rising.

The ATV riding is exceptional. Did you know we have access to approximately 400 miles of trails from The Cabins at Bear River Lodge?

We have started construction on Cabin 6 (the first five bedroom cabin) and the swimming pool.

The foundations for both will be poured starting next week.

Construction photos will be posted soon!
