Photo detail

Jose Ibaira of Brown Roofing Company of The Dalles splits a shake to size as he replaces a roof on the Anderson Homestead barn at Fort Dalles Museum. Piled at his feet are a selection of shakes, which he sorts and splits for placement. The roof is being reconstructed as it was originally built, with the shakes nailed directly to the roofing slats, with no paper or plywood beneath. Half of the $12,685 project cost was funded through an Oregon Heritage Grant awarded by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (ORPD) and the Oregon Heritage Commission. The grant was matched by museum funds.
