Block One Vandals!
[au]workshop was surprised the other day to find several newly planted trees missing from the rear of the recently-completed Block One. Closer inspection revealed the damaged saplings to be the work of a beaver or beavers.
We'd be lying if we said we weren't just a little chagrinned, but we have to admire a fellow designer just collecting building material, irony and all. It's just one of those unanticipated challenges of locating a project so close to the river.
That said, we're working with Encompass Technologies, the building owner, to protect the remaining saplings from harm, and to replace the two downed trees. Admiration or not, the beavers will need to find their lumber somewhere else.
