Project Report | Jun 13, 2013

After a couple of years of negotiations with locals and the local association Amezray SMNID, the Atlas Cultural Foundation has started into the next phase of the project. It was imperative for us to have written agreements about the final phase of the project as well as management of the project after construction. With over 28 families having ownership in the historic building, it has been a huge accomplishment to reach full consensus of all the owners. The final phase of the project includes the construction of the community room, library space as well as the restoration of the granaries damaged roof and a wall that was compromised structurally.

We hope to have the project completed before the first snowfall this winter. The project will be the first community space in the village of Amezray n' Oozdir, and will be the location of the elementary school tutoring program, community and association meetings, tourist presentations, local elections and more.

Here are a couple of photos of the down and dirty construction process of a 400 year old granary. Working with the local craftsmen is a real pleasure. They are all very passionate about their work as well as what this project will bring to the community and their children.
