Darkhorse Lodge Progress

This page holds photos of the progress as we build. We will take you along on our journey from the groundbreaking to the first guest that will come through our doors and will keep you posted as we go. Stay tuned...... 

Creating a Strong Foundation

After choosing the perfect location for each of the buildings, our team went to work with clearing and leveling the land. Each foundation was carefully planned and grids were laid in preparation for pouring the concrete. One by one, each cinderblock was stacked and the buildings started to take shape.

Building the Framework

With the groundwork completed, our team began the wooden infrastructure of the building. With the floors, walls, and rafters in place, the next step was to add on the roof. To finish off this building, some additional stonework was done to create a ramped entrance.

The Five Cabins

With the main building well underway, the five cabins gained their framework in quick succession. As each construction phase was completed on one cabin, our team could start with the next cabin, and so on until we could see all of the phases side-by-side. The cabins stood in various phases of completion including: framing, installing Tyvek walls, installing windows and doors, laying down roofing layers, and adding siding to the exterior walls.

Making Room

Each of the buildings required interior framing during the building process in order to partition specific rooms and spaces. With the beams and windows in place, our team added electrical and plumbing to each cabin which required trenching outside of the cabins as well. A final touch of the buildout was insulating the cabins and installing the interior duct work for air conditioning units.
