Mountain Lodge Construction at Chatter Creek Cat Skiing
It's the end of September, 2002 and Chatter Creek partners Dan Josephson and Dave Markel survey the enormous amount of work to be done to complete two-story, 9500 sq ft. Vertebrae Lodge. In three short months, 24 guests will be in residence. The exterior walls are up, the roof is just on, and there is an inch of snow and ice on the dining room floor. All of the finishing has yet to be done. Windows and doors are yet to be installed in the log walls. The interior framing, wall board, electrical systems, plumbing for 14 bathrooms, a commercial kitchen and a hot tub, the heating system and the entire septic system all remain to be started. All for the love of powder skiing!

For a closer look at this huge project, see our Mountain Lodge Construction Web site and it's companion sites.
