Progress at the Astillero

Peeling rafter poles

We have had two work days cleaning up the poles we brought in from the woods last week
The last session saw us moving forward on the next layer of the boatshed structure. We have begun to shape the heavy poles that will form the cross beams and the top plate for the roof itself.

To lift the beams that will form the roof base we made tall gin poles to which we will attach the block and tackle to lift them into place.
