Exactly two weeks after having out boathouse project stopped by the City building department that our 16th Century replica building did not meet 21st century codes, through interventions on the part of individuals who stepped forward to help, we did receive an official permit to continue construction.
As a result of this civic sanction, we have continued thatching the roof of the boathouse. Photos below:
Using fronds that had been delivered by Nathan Keen of K&S Tree Service the day after we got shut down, somewhat worse for the delay but still serviceable. We had a great volunteer turn out and were able to move well forward.
