Video: Building the Class of 1966 Bunkhouse

Alumni and students worked together to construct a timber frame for the Class of 1966 Bunkhouse.

 

Over the course of a week in late summer, alumni and students worked together to construct a timber frame for the Class of 1966 Bunkhouse, a new building at the Moosilauke Ravine Lodge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The bunkhouse is a gift from the Class of 1966 to Dartmouth, and members of the Class of 1966 were among those who gathered at Moosilauke to help raise the frame. David Hooke ’84, who owns a local construction company that specializes in timber frames, led the effort. Much of the wood for the frame was harvested at the Dartmouth Organic Farm.

In this video, students and alumni talk about what they took away from their work on the bunkhouse.
