The Rocky Top crew works exclusively on 70 miles of the A.T. through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park following the ridge crest from Davenport Gap to Fontana Dam. The crew is sponsored jointly by the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, the National Park Service, and ATC.

Trusses and Lintels

The second week of work at ATC's Crew Basecamp at Soak Ash Creek was a huge success. The crew of volunteers from Smoky Mountains Hiking Club worked to install the trusses that will support the plywood sub-floor.

The crew got an early start on Saturday, January 11. 

Meanwhile, the new foyer railing was getting a paint job. 

Wayne waits patiently for the first delivery of concrete.
This will be the outside doorway from the basement.

The lintel is added. These suckers are heavy!

By the end of Saturday, about half the pool had trusses.

The rain from Saturday subsided enough for intrepid volunteers
Casey and Pam to ditch around the driveway, encouraging
better drainage around the house. 

Prep for the lintel installation in the downstairs back bedroom. 

Carolyn and Phyllis kept volunteers well fed and
managed to create order in the kitchen.

Planning underway for the stairwell and retaining wall
for the basement entrance. 

Long shadows indicate the end of the day, a long day of digging,
 and signaled the end of the ditching project.

Trusses in place. Just about time to add the decking!

Until next time...
