Partial Completion of Phase II Water Mitigation
PSABC has completed its portion of the mission to stabilize the ongoing decay at the Wolfe and Moyer Cabins by removing multiple roll off dumpster loads of fallen debris and installing fans and a dehumidifier to slow organic decomposition of the wooden structure. Work included the removal of the floor system in the sleeping porch and kitchen and bathroom areas as well as the rotten roof over the kitchen. The area surrounding the cabins were cleared of brush and large amounts of poison ivy were sprayed. Bracing was provided to shore the exterior kitchen wall. All artifacts were placed in the on site metal shed. An estimate of logs needed and work required were made by Sineath Construction. A total of $10,000 was spent by the PSABC towards this stabilization process. During the month of November, 2016 The City reviewed recommendations by PSABC and began planning to install additional shoring.
It had been determined by PSABC that the removal of the back bedroom was more viable than replacement of the flooring in terms of the remaining funds available. The City has joined in that effort by using its heavy equipment to demolish the existing basement. Additional restoration of the cabin awaits further funding for the entire site.
