Are you looking for a fun event to bring the kids to this weekend? Bring them to a free log raising event in Wildwood!
In the tradition of log and barn raisings of yesteryear, a log raising event will be hosted locally on August 27, 2016, from 9 am to 2 pm in Wildwood. The free event will be held on the site of Happy Hounds Playground, a dog park opening in spring of 2017 at 2448 Pond Road.
Attendees will be able to watch as the exterior Missouri Oak log walls of the Happy Hounds main building are erected. They will be able to see how the logs are stacked and sealed and how the T&G window and door frames are installed. Staff will be available to answer any questions you may have. This is such a fun event for any builders you may have out there!
Hibbs General Contracting & Gastineau Log Homes are hosting the event as they partner to build the membership office for the Happy Hounds facility. When completed, the private membership dog park, located on 10 acres of land, will feature splash pads, playground equipment for dogs of all sizes, a swimming pond, nature trails, paw washing stations, and more.
Stop by for a short visit or stay all day! Make sure to bring lawn chairs and dress for the weather. As this site is under construction, muddy conditions are a possibility. Free parking is available across the street at First Baptist Church, 2470 Pond Road. Refreshments will be provided for those that attend, including donuts and coffee in the morning, and hot dogs, chips, and cookies in the afternoon.
Hibbs General Contracting & Gastineau Log Homes staff will be available to answer any questions visitors may have about the log building construction process for commercial and residential projects.
