The Hungry Horse News reports that crews from Dick Anderson Construction are wrapping up the first phase of reconstruction of the Sperry Chalet in Glacier National Park. On Monday, they finished the roof as a fall snowstorm was getting ready to bear down on the chalet, said project manager Travis Neil.
The $4 million project started in July. Since then crews have poured a foundation and put in the first and second floors of the building. In addition, timber beam rafters and wood sheer stud walls, designed to better protect the structure from an avalanche or earthquake have also gone up.
