Ridge Pole

On Friday, we placed the first king post. Today Monday, we placed three more kingposts and crowned them with the first section of the ridgepole.  Each of the individual pieces had been cut and shaped by the volunteers working with great competence and good will.

The essential ingredient in the the solid progress we are making on this project is the collective wisdom and skill of our volunteers. In our group we have 400 years of life experience, that is daily brought to fruitful bearing on every aspect of the work.

The crew was generously supported by Hazel Wunschel in period dress who brought orange juice, coffee and donuts for our mid morning break.
