Hanalei Pier Canopy Restoration Underway (12/10/12)

The visitors to Hanalei pier will have to deal with restoration project for a while as restoration underway on canopy above the pier.

Link below indicates "...Wells Custom Homes, which won the contract to remove the canopy, hopes to have the that portion of the restoration done by the end of December. The rebuilding of the new canopy will likely be finished by April 2013..."

December to April to replace a roof? You have to be kidding me.

Is this part of the Save the Pier project? Glad to hear they're taking care of it.

Should have your link first, CT. I bought a couple of Save the Pier shirts this summer. The Rotary Club was selling them at the Hanalei Open Water Swim.

RTE, remember, this is Kaua`i. Island time. It took them a year to build our house, and we had a great manager and crew.

They are replacing a canopy from the 90s. I sure hope the new canopy lasts longer than 20 years.

I think redoing a roof is a bit different than building an entire house. I kind of thought the same thing. 4 months seems a long time just to replace a roof and most of it looks like its down anyway. Maybe there is more to this story.

DH estimated that on the mainland the house shouldn't have taken more than 9 months max. Remember, our house was a kit. They didn't have to cut anything. Took us about 6 months just to get the building permit.

After watching the action on the webcam.........at this pace an April completion may be overly optimistic! Jebett....I'm thinking this may be the crew working on Bali Hai and Happy Talk. :)
