Construction of the TLCFA Building was begun in December of 1948 – 70 years ago.
The expected life of a Quonset hut roof is about 50 – 60 years (note: a Quonset Hut is ALL roof).
About 40 years ago the roof was modify to accommodate entrances for second floor apartments with shallow pitch roofs. In the past five years we have had multiple water intrusions damaging walls and ceiling tiles. In addition several of the external panels have begun loosen and heat escapes.
In short, it’s past time to replace it.
At present we don’t know what the total costs will be, but John Joseph Development & Construction is in the process of assessing the situation and will cost out replacing the roof.
A reminder all donations are tax deductible and if done by Dec 31, will apply to 2020 taxes.
We believe that artists are a crucial leavening agent, generating the creative energy that our community needs in a rapidly changing and perplexing world. Three Lakes is not immune to such global phenomena as climate change, invasive species, the technology revolution, economic collapse. We need to be resilient and innovative-—qualities nurtured by exposure to, and participation in, the creative arts. As a “creative community” we will be better able to embrace change, to grapple with new challenges and circumstances.
It is our dream to build “a magical place with creativity humming around it, an intimate, welcoming space for the whole community to play together and remember how fun it is to be creative, foolish, inspired–how to take chances, make mistakes, and enjoy doing it.
