Conestoga Huts in Use - Ready, Set, Go!


Mark and Dianne were the first two people placed in a Conestoga hut as a part of the city's car camping program.  OVE board member, Rev. Dr. Brent Was, and his congregation at the Church of the Resurrection are hosting the two Conestoga's and will soon be looking to add a third.  The components of the huts were constructed off site at our workshop space with a combination of new and recycled materials, and then assembled on site with help from Mark, Dianne, Community Supported Shelters and a couple handful of volunteers.  Thanks to all who came out to support the effort!


Check out the completed huts here.








Update:
A third hut has now gone up at the Church of the Resurrection.  Mark and Dianne helped a couple of new neighbors move in with another handful of helpers.  See some photos of the collaborative effort below.
