Some of my construction
Thought I would throw together this page with some of
the construction projects I have been involved in.
For those that don't know. I do a little side work with a local contractor on occasion.
New projects in 2007
|Our latest project.
Sidwalks at Conneaut Township Park. Up in the 'bluffs' area.
It's hard to get the full perspective in a picture. That trench you see runs over 850' and is for a sidewalk that will be 6 feet wide.

|Below are pictures
of some work we did there a couple year ago. The roads
and the curbing were redone by another company. we got to
go through and backfill, grade, seed and straw the whole
Took a few weeks to do.
Not fun in the middle of summer out in the sun like that.
Projects from 2006
|First we re-did the upper pavilion. We didn't build it. Just renovated it. New siding outside, added siding inside on the walls and for the ceiling. It also got garage doors added for the lake side of the building, so if there were a storm coming in, or cold winds, you can now close that side for more shelter.|
|In the same area as that
pavilion, we built this gazebo.
In the far corner overlooking the lake and the park.
This thing was a real pain.
See those boards used for the roof/ceiling?
Well I handled them way too many times
If I remember correctly there were 567 boards.
|I have built
several garages in the area.
The one above is just one of them. This one was lots of fun as the property is located on what was once one of the city's schools. In particular. This part seems to be have been in the playground area.
As we found a whole lot of asphalt when we were trying to dig the post holes.
Lots of fun trying to get the auger bit on the tractor to try and dig through it.
|My first job at Township Park.
We rebuilt the pump house.
Just a small shed-like building to house the pump by the concesion stand.
Not a big job, but it did quickly illustrate some of the issues with working for the park committe. We had to go back a few times and make minor changes to satisfy the different board members.
