1. Woodcutting path south of Keels
 Woodcutting path south of Keels This path may be more than a century old, and would have been made by residents of Keels to facilitate the transport of wood cut from the forest bordering Keels to the south and west back to the community where it was used as firewood. The path is still used for the same purpose, though instead of horse-pulled carts or slides, it is now mainly used by ATVs. It is also a pedestrian path leading to the Castle's Cove swimming pond, and is also used by people picking berries. THis photo was taken facing northeast, towards Keels. The dense vegetation growing on either side of the path is typical of the area surrounding Keels to the south and west.

 Floor plan of Phonse Ducey's store, Keels, NL. Architecture, building and construction; Buildings; Storage buildings; Built sometime in the 1990s, Phonse Ducey’s store is typical of many mid-to-late twentieth century outbuildings in Keels. The structure is located to the southeast of Phonse and Marg’s house, adjacent to the driveway, which is located in the west section of Keels, across from St. Peter’s Anglican Church. Originally constructed for stowing firewood, the building has been used for drying squid, is occasionally used for drying fish but primarily serves as a general storage space, housing recycling, some equipment, and fire wood for the stove inside the house.

 Floor plan of Phonse Ducey's twine store, Keels, NL. Architecture, building and construction; Buildings; Storage buildings; This building was constructed in the early 1950s, under the supervision of Reg Chapman, as a house for Felix Penny. Phonse Ducey purchased the house to use as his twine store in 1978. The original structure was based on a two room plan (kitchen and bedroom), with a linney containing a small front porch and rear pantry. Phonse opened up the doorway between the former kitchen and bedroom to make more space for net-making. Today, the house is rarely used, but during the time of the cod trap fishery, the space was extensively employed during the winter months, when Phonse and other fishermen would spend many days there making nets and mending those that had been torn during the fishing season.

 Floor plan of Phonse Ducey's fish store, Keels, NL. Architecture, building and construction; Buildings; Storage buildings; Built sometime between 1985 and 1987 Phonse Ducey’s fish store is a simple structure of red painted pressboard, with a framework of 2x4s exposed on the interior. The red paint imitates the style of older days when most fish stores were coloured with red ochre. Despite the name, Phonse’s fish store is never used to store fish; it is exclusively intended for the storage of fishing paraphernalia. Inside, are a work bench, two shelves holding large wooden puncheons, and two pounds. Pounds are generally used to store salt fish; however, these pounds hold dozens of jerry cans, wooden license tags, ropes, and nets. As in many other stores in the area, the rafter space is used for storage of long tools such as oars, jiggers, prongs, and poles.

The building’s primary function at the moment is as a storage facility--housing dip nets, gill nets, balloons, squid jiggers, lump gear, graples, buoy ropes, boat motors, flakes, furniture, and a slide for hauling wood. John also occasionally uses the space as a workshop when he repairs motors.
