In September and October of 2008, Pam and Clint Cavers barn was deconstructed in order for the wood to find a new life within another building project. Its original structure was constructed at the turn of the 20th century; the portion that was being deconstructed was built in the 1940’s. Old growth lumber that is no longer available in the markets, underneath the layers of grime lays pristine wood that could be rejuvenated into a brand new structurally sound building if properly implemented. It was decided that this wood would be recovered and reused within a structure in the nearby town of Clearwater.
The Redesign became an exterior addition onto the towns co-op restaurant. The three season space would provide ample space for the fluctuating crowds that somehow manage to fill the entire building despite being a town of just 68 residents. The exterior space was to be designed to also become a second stage for the yearly Harvest Moon Festival.
