A beautiful autumn day in Potlatch
Today is the perfect autumn day -- 80 degrees and fall colors to rival anything in New England! Levi Laird is painting the green trim, as Wyatt Strahm and the crew from Timberworks stay focused on nailing down shakes. Project foreman Dan Karel has been replacing some of the rotted shakes on the second story exterior in preparation for that first coat of paint, and the building is looking downright respectable. With continued good weather, painting can start on the upper section, maybe tomorrow. The crews we have on this project are a dedicated bunch and they're taking a lot of pride in this restoration. As part of today's activities, WIMHPG President Don Somers also got a ride in the lift so he could inspect things at close range.
