Electrical work is now being completed, and soon insulation and drywall will be installed inside the new Lacamas Lake Lodge and Conference Center.
Contractor JWC Construction began work in July on the 5,000 square foot building located on the banks of Lacamas Lake. It has slowly begun to take shape in the last couple of months.
“There hasn’t been any real unexpected challenges,” said Site Superintendent Chad Shumaker on Friday. “The city has been super easy to work with. This is going to be a beautiful building.”
The new $842,000 structure, owned and operated by the city of Camas, will consist of a large event space, two smaller meeting rooms, office space, kitchen, restrooms, storage, large covered patio and a 60-foot long dock.
The facility, located adjacent to Heritage Park, will also feature a fireplace with a mantle carved by a local artist using wood from a tree that formerly stood at the site. In addition, the building will have vaulted ceilings, with large windows to take advantage of the lake views.
