This builder had to build a dam to hold back the lake in order to construct the boat house. I asked how you bid on a job like that, he said you don’t. The lots start at a cool mill. The home owner already had him move the dock 6 feet further out. That cost an extra 10k. The final bill won’t be known until the work is done.:shock:

Crude, but effective. Reminds me of my days spent in cofferdams while constructing bridges in Hawaii. We’d be 60 to 100 feet below the waters surface.

That looks like a Port-a-dam system. I used to work for them for a little bit back in the mid 90’s. I spent more time working for their sister company Walking Diving Contractors. They are actually very effective damn systems for doing shallow water work.

Very cool
