Hopefully, we'll get lots of Bretheren to post their Lodge pics here.
 
A little dark.....but I'm working on it.......The interior of my Lodge on the upper floor.
Looking towards the WM chair. 
This is The Masonic Lodge in Geraldton.
Guess what the car rego is?????(hint......it's MY car)
 
The Lodge was built around the 1930's and is constructed of sandstone,  which is very common around here. It now has a Heritage listing by my State of WA.

Looks like a nice building. I like that exterior stone work. Here are a couple of exterior shots of my Lodge:

That really is a nice setting.  Be nice to see a pic of inside.
 
Is the roof "shingled/shingles".??Confused
Not sure what the right word is.

Yes, we have shingles on the roof. That is normal for most homes and many buildings here.
 
My interior pictures are terrible. Our Lodge room is very poorly lighted - which makes for some bad pictures. I can assure you, however, that it is not one of the most beautiful Lodge rooms. The dark green carpet and burnt orange theater seating reflect the times in which the building was constructed (1960s). We do have a beautiful altar and columns, however. All four were handmade by one of our members. The pictures of those aren't good, but I'll throw them up here:

Here's a photo of the inside and outside of our Masonic Temple.  My Lodge (Spartan 70, the mother Lodge of the Temple) meets there.  One other Lodge, and all the local appendant bodies meet in the Temple, too.

What I'd like to see in our Temple is the carpet in the center around the altar removed and a tesserated tile floor put in--something similar to the UGLE in London:

We have blue flooring because we are the only ones to meet in out building besides the Stars.  Now in one I visit often there color is red, because it is also the home to other bodies.

Well, the Scottish Rite is sometimes called "Red Masonry," so maybe that's why our carpet is red.  The Scottish Rite had it installed. LOL

(I guess I should be glad the Cryptic Council didn't pay for the carpet.)

Chrism242, that is a beautiful Lodge. The big hall can seat a 200 or more people.

But question, the windows are still open to the outside, how do you keep eavesdroppers from watching the Ritual?

This is Cedarville 622  The Alter was hand made by one of brothers WB Chic Dyas years ago in the back of his Barbershop. There are lights around the columuns and stool. Unfortunely we no longer meet here. But the Alter is on display at a big city lodge.Picture

Brother CAMB MASON,  I would be honored to give you more pictures of the Alter that Worshipful Brother Charles (Chic ) Dyas built in the back of his little barber shop in the tiny town of Cedarville Ohio. I do know that 3 Grand Masters took there obligations at Grand Lodge on his alter. When I get off second shift I will take my camera to lodge. He was trully a great Mason and loved his lodge. I had the honor of sitting in lodge with him in his later years. He was trully awesome!!
Thanks

PS That alter in that room is where I took my obligation when I became in 2002 as Master of the lodge.

I did some checking out this morning and "YES"....the're about 80-90 years old.
They were made locally(here in Geraldton) and more so than not......handcrafted.
Most of the furniture in my lodge appears to be of the same timber.......which....I don't know yet.....maybe Jarrah, which is a hardwood found here in Western Australia.
I also found that the Wardens columns are handcrafted as are the 3 Columns within the Lodge.

It's a very sturdy & hard timber, as you cannot drive a nail into it without predrilling before hand. It comes up a beautiful timber especially when varnished. I'll check for sure at our next meeting.

It's a very sturdy & hard timber, as you cannot drive a nail into it without predrilling before hand. It comes up a beautiful timber especially when varnished. I'll check for sure at our next meeting.


Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jarrah

We had jarrah floorboards in our old house - like slabs of iron; beautiful when polished though.

first time seeing those columns used, too bad we don't here in Mass., our lessor lights are placed on the floor in a triangle and only on the first.  We have pedestals like yours tm but we also have lights on them as well.  very nice furniture.

Schnider.
 
It looks a fairly new building and it has modern lighting, probably a/c too.
Is that carpet or lino and it's it carpet........sure is a srange colour as I would expect Blue or Red...maybe green.
As for the pics on the wall, we have ours in our Festive room.
Good size Lodge, I will say.Thumbs%20Up
 
PS.........don't see anysigns of your Tracing Boards though.
