How to renovate a NZFS 2-bunk biv
Richard Janssen has set the standard with renovating the classic Canterbury version of the stand-up 2-person NZFS biv. In Round 5 of the funding, he was granted $10,000 to restore the neglected Mackenzie Biv in Lake Sumner Forest Park. Not only did they completely renovate the biv, including re-roofing the hut and restoring the small open fire, but they also built a toilet and woodshed for the hut. The work, pride and effort he and Al Kircher put into the restoration of this biv will take some beating. The open fireplaces of these little bivs are a unique feature but many are past it now and need restoring and Richard and Al show how to do it here so that the bivs retain their historic character but will be good to go for the next generation.
