Mt. Assiniboine Lodge Renovation, Mt. Assiniboine Park, B.C.
As the famous Mt. Assiniboine Lodge is in dire need of restoration, Parks Canada wants to expand the entryway and kitchen facilities while installing a proper concrete foundation and bringing the whole building to code. The log structure is to be taken apart and re-assembled, replacing rotten logs and adding new volumes, incorporating the original construction methods as the Norse carpenters that build the lodge in the first place.
