As much as all of us at HSL love being at the Saranac Laboratory Museum, a fascinating building built in 1894, it is fun to get out of the office sometimes! Executive Director Amy Catania and I recently ventured out of the office to meet with Bill Plumb and Joe Plumb of Adirondack White Pine Cabins. The Plumb's business is located right here in Saranac Lake and it's a (somewhat) hidden treasure! At their massive garage just off Route 3, Bill, Joe and their team build small custom cabins (on wheels!) which are shipped all over the country.
We met with Bill and Joe to discuss the mobile porch project and share our ideas with them. The meeting was a huge success, if I do say so myself! Bill and Joe were interested in our plans and rough sketches for the porch. The Plumbs have a wonderful amount of practical knowledge and experience and they immediately applied all of that to our ideas. We discussed structure, feasibility, materials, and vehicles, among many other things. We know that this porch can and will be built!!
We're looking forward to a continued collaboration with the crew at Adirondack White Pine Cabins and know that they are going to provide us with invaluable expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm. Above and below, see photos of our visit, taken by our intrepid Executive Director Amy. Amy is always eager for a good photo opp.
We have some exciting meetings coming up to further develop our plans for programming, community collaborations, fundraising and more, so stay tuned for updates!
Historic Saranac Lake is developing the Cure Porch on Wheels, an exciting mobile exhibit space that will allow HSL to present mini exhibitions and oral history projects to audiences at locations throughout the area.
