The old pier
... and stripped.

This project was to remove an old and rotten 64' pier of a lakeshore resort, and rebuild it on the old concrete sockets. The challenge was a very high waterlevel of the lake. The resort belongs to a co-op with several owners, and all had to give their approval for the project and its financing, so it took several weeks until I could finally start, while the water was rising daily due to the spring offrun, and was finally almost overflooding the concrete blocks. On those however - since they were partially tilted and not on level anymore - I planned to set the beam supports in a concrete pack on top of the sockets (and bolted down to the old sockets, with anchors glued with epoxy in drilled holes). It was literally the last minute to be able to do this, before the water would be too high.
Once the levelling and anchoring was accomplished, it was mere carpentry work - even though going in the still cold water was sometime inevitable, and some of the bolting was done from a little boat.
