Workshop Day II
Day II began again with breakfast in the sunshine, and bale raising to complete the rest of the main floor wall. At the end of the day, the group worked together to raise the top plate (the wood structure that sits on top of the wall to serve as a key compression point). An exciting milestone to hit!
These are just a few of the photos. I'll add more to my Flickr.com file later so that workshop friends can download them (since it takes so long to upload them to the main blog). Mitchell is seen crouching high on top of the portion of wall that he and Charles masterfully assembled. Annabelle is seen looking like some sort of urban-meets-rural super hero with a chainsaw. She's cutting channels in the walls so that we can add external pins to provide additional support to the wall. Dave M. is seen using THE PERSUADER to beat bales back into place.
