Jordan Domes was grinding logs during the Lac la Hache Community Hall upgrades recently.

The Lac la Hache Community hall is being transformed and freshened up by the hard work of a number of South Cariboo contractors.

Last week, the logs had their aged and weathered surfaces ground off to reveal fresh bright natural colour.

John Ratch, of Great Western Log Chinking from Interlakes, noted there is quite a process to protect the newly freshened up logs.

The logs are first ground clean and sanded and then they are stained with a UV protecting stain that will still let the character of the logs show through.

Then the chinking process begins. This is where the gaps between the logs get filled with a pliable material that will withstand the changing temperatures in our area and will keep the gaps between the logs sealed off from the weather.

The hall will look amazing when all the work is completed. The entrance deck was now bordered by a new log railing and all the wood soffetting is competed and new bright lighting is installed to improve visibility at the hall.
