CWB: Northlake Community Wharf Gets a New Roof….Just in Time

January 18, 2012

Finished just in time to keep out the snow

There’s something about the threat of “Snowmageddon” that gets roof crews moving. The team from Cloise and Mike Construction of Port Orchard has done a phenomenal job over the last four days taking off the old roof at The Center for Wooden Boats new Northlake Community Wharf, and putting in place a new metal roof. When the snow finally arrived today, CWB’s new facility at the North end of Lake Union was ready for it.

In the 5 weeks since we signed the lease with King County site our crews and volunteers have pulled more than 9000 pounds of trash and debris out, gutted the interior of the warehouse, steam cleaned the interior (making sure to capture and remove all the water), installed new windows, cleared the site of blackberries, cleaned up the yard and installed fencing all around the property.

“It’s been phenomenal to watch the progress on the building,” said Betsy Davis, the CWB Executive Director. “Watching how hard the crews and volunteers work is a true inspiration.”

So what’s next? The CWB team will start working soon on the new electrical system. And when the weather allows it, we’ll begin painting the exterior walls of the building.

Before we know it, all the work will be done, and we’ll begin moving in boats and tools we’ll be using to repair and restore the CWB fleet and collection. Stay tuned for more.
