Chatter Creek Mountain Lodge Construction
The Wood Mizer 'LT 40 hydraulic' band mill, with it's 45'ft bed, has been hard at work since the snow melted. It has milled joists and deckings for three floors, 2x6 studs for partition walls, 2 in boards for decking, 1 in boards for panelling, 2x12 rafters and a variety of beams and posts.

The old excavator is still giving yeoman service after many years of hard work. It now has a lot of help from a newer and much larger machine. The building to the left of the lodge is the workshop and occasional bunkhouse for staff.
