Camp Hearne Diary - February 5, 2010

We are raising the roof!!!

Matt, Jim and Coleman are setting the prefabricated trusses from Stark Truss. These are placed over the "modern" interior part of the building. The original barrack plan calls for 8' ceilings, but they did allow for a raised ceiling when necessary to accommodate refrigerators, etc. In our exhibit area, we decided to raise the ceiling another 8" so there would be more clearance (ventilation) above our display cases.

The Crew will install custom trusses over the barrack replica area to achieve the original appearance inside the barrack.
