Watchmen Cabin at SGang Gwaay

Mark Yaroshuk was instrumental in the construction of the cabin in the park. He worked hard to bring this project to completion, from it’s conception. With his experience and history, he was the best pick to undertake this project to build a longhouse style living structure as a Watchmen Cabin.

In the spring and summer of 2015 this longhouse cabin was in full construction mode during the tourist season. All of the materials had to be brought into the site from the northern part of the island. This remote location does have it challenges, most notably having everything you need once you start building, otherwise there has to be some modification to make what you have work for you.
