Civic Project: Lancaster Warming Hut
The project was accomplished with donated timber and ship-lapped lumber sawn at the Garland Mill. The hut was designed to use very little fuel to heat by installing 4 inches of rigid foam insulation under the slab, 6 inches of foam in the walls and 9 inches of foam on the roof. All the rigid foam was salvage.
The warming hut project was led by Lancaster Police Chief John Gardiner, Wes Arita, and Peter Riviere and benefited from generous donations of time and materials by Kilkenny Hardware, Perras Ace Hardware, White Mountain Lumber, AB Logging, Robby Couture, Bob MacInvaile, Bruno MacKenzie, and countless others.
