The Challenge

The project faced a significant obstacle due to its location, which was quite far from the team’s base. Unique living arrangements and long hours were necessary for the crew to focus on the renovation. 

The meticulous process of preserving and reusing the original cedar shingles also presented challenges that required significant time and creativity.
