Its been a great winter so far. Plenty of snow for skiing and building forts. But it's all about the Historic Renovation of the Yellow Hotel.
I've toured the Yellowstone Hotel during this process of renovation. These guys have quite a project underway. Last night I was up in the attic, saw 40 foot beams being threaded behind pipes and supports by two construction workers. I wear a pink hardhat from the Office every time I'm in the Hotel. Anything could happen. Its amazing the co ordination of effort by the drivers, sub contractors and construction dudes to make this happen.
The project superintendent explained to me that the work in the attic involves taking pressure and weight off the outside walls and direct some of that to the middle of the hotel. See, I thought it was all about bracing up the roof so it didn't collapse under the weight of all the snow. But, turns out its about taking all that downward pressure exerted on the exterior walls and redistributing it to the center of the great Hotel.
