In July 2023, Foundation Director Kevin Keim began the careful reconstruction of the massive arbor that spans the courtyard and water tank in the center of the Moore/Andersson Compound.

The difficult Phase 1 involved the removal of the deteriorated 2x8 beams so the 40 massive Cypress 8"x8"x10' posts could be made plumb once again. All this had to be done while everything above was braced up against gravity!

Phase 2 will be technically easier, but requires a SIGNIFICANT amount of Western Red Cedar timber.

While we're at it with Western Red Cedar in Austin, we are also planning the next preservation project at the Burns House in Santa Monica Canyon. This project involves the reconstruction of the deteriorated gates and the construction of a new trellis to screen views to a neighboring property.

To keep costs to a minimum, Kevin does virtually all of the restoration work himself. So contributions for materials really do make a difference.
