Grant Awarded for Ponderosa Renovation
Work will begin again this winter and spring on Ponderosa Lodge, thanks to a $200,000 grant that has been awarded to La Foret to continue the restoration project that began in early 2017. We will need to provide a match of $66,700 for this project to take place.
Improvements will include the remainder of the rotten log replacement that is mostly around the foundation. The concrete on the porches will be removed and the large vertical columns on both sides of the building will be repaired. The windows and screens will also be renovated. All the work will be on the exterior of the building.
While very hard to do, we will try to complete this in steps in order to only slightly inconvenience our guests. We would like to allow the building to be in continuous use during the duration of the project. It is estimated that it will take two years to fully complete.
