The Light Up The Lodge project began small, with the commission of floor and table lamps for the lobby and guest rooms, as a gift to Timberline Lodge for its 60th Anniversary. The project gained momentum after a significant fundraising auction and a matching grant from the Meyer Memorial Trust.

In 1999, Madden Fabrication was asked to assist GKA lighting in furnishing these fixtures for the historic stucture. Madden used a combination of CAD design, laser cutting, forging and expert metal working. The resulting fixtures proved to be an addition worthy of this wonderful landmark. To date, Madden Fabrication has provided major installations of custom-designed lighting in the Mt. Hood and Mt. Jeff banquet rooms and guest room hallways.
