Downtown, what might one find in downtown Bear’s Den? Well, let’s see, a general store, bath house, blacksmith, hardware store, lumber supply, mining supply, saw works, hotel, saloon/bar or maybe a church. That’s where I started but I ended up with a school. Every town must have a place to educate our knuckleheads. Sometime ago, I ran across a photo of a model of a lighthouse that I really liked but we don’t have an ocean or any other body of water that needs a lighthouse on the WSRR. As I was looking at the photo, I realized I could convert the tower and its light to a bell tower for a school. Below is the original napkin drawing generated by the WSRR architects.
This will be a 2-story, wood framed structure sitting on a brick foundation with a wrap around porch. There will be a small addition on the back that houses the kitchen. This should be a fun and challenging build.
