The project involves painting interior and exterior surfaces of 18 cabins, two lodges, and a group camp building at Lake D’Arbonne State Park.

The project includes work on the interior and exterior surfaces of 18 cabins located at the Lake D’Arbonne State Park in Farmerville, LA.

Bids are due Oct. 1. A non-mandatory pre-bid meeting was held Tuesday (Sept. 17). The owner requests that all bidders arrange for a jobsite visit.

Scope of Project

The contractor will perform repairs as well as scrape, feather sand, prime and paint or stain sections of exterior wooden overhangs, soffit, fascia and trim on the buildings.

Carpentry should not be replaced in sections, only as whole members, according to project details.

All exterior siding should be capable of withstanding humid conditions and should be compatible with the existing siding, the owner said.

Interior walls and ceilings of the buildings, including the group camp facility, are to be painted using a brush or roller.

All painted and stained surfaces must be cleaned of dirt, rust and mildew before any painting or staining. The interior drywall on the walls and ceilings of the buildings will be painted to the preference of the project inspector, the owner said.

Paint and stain is to be applied using brush or roller; spray application is not permitted.

About Lake D’Arbonne State Park

Opened in 1993, the 655-acre park is a popular site for fishing, camping and hiking with views of the rolling hills and dense pine forests, according to reports.

The park is built around a man-made reservoir that spans 15,250 acres.

Along with its cabins and lodges, Lake D’Arbonne State Park includes 58 campsites to accommodate the outdoor enthusiasts of Louisiana. Other site facilities include a swimming beach, swimming pool, tennis courts, launch ramps for boating, and five fishing piers, according to the Louisiana State Parks website.
