Workshop Raising

The workshop in the woods went up on June 9th 2007, culmination of 10 days of cutting and joinery, weeks of weather watching, months of letter writing and form filling, and years of dreaming and planning. A fine crew turned up on a fine day, and after 3 hours of leveling, lifting, placing, raising, hammering and pegging....the Douglas Fir frame was up and sitting pretty in its new woodland home. The fire was lit as the sun dipped, the fish fried and the venison stewed, the ale supped and the guitars strummed. One of those memorable days, the fulfillment of a long held dream, a wee hut in the woods. Thanks to all who helped, the kettle's always on....
