Long Physical Description:
Boathouse #549 is an interior-frame building, constructed of heavy 6” x 6” rough-milled posts connected to floor and ceiling level horizontal members (creating a series of “boxes” running the length of the building). The 8” exterior shiplap siding is visible behind this framing system. Heavy planks, laid across the beams form a partial storage loft. The remainder of the ceiling is open to the roof, exposing the wood-frame truss system. The floor is graveled and the boats are winched into the space along large free-rolling logs running perpendicular to the entrance.
