2009, Spring. Carpenters at work. Barrel roof goes up.

In mid March, a design 'irregularity' was discovered and some re-working of the second floor roof had to be done. John, Keith and Jimmy had to re-do a lot of work, but it is a beautiful sight to see. Here are images of the roof work, and final shots of the barrel roof.

March 2009. All the roofs are up! Plastic on the ground is some stone work that Linda and Scot have begun. What follows are some shots of all that work in progress.

Jimmy and Keith (up high) discuss issues with John (on the ground.) Note the curved board above John's head. That will be where the barrel roof begins over the living room.

2009, March. The Radial Roof goes up.

In late February John Edmonson and his crew of skilled carpenters put up the radial roof over the master bedroom. We had originally planned on covering the joist structure, but upon seeing the beauty of the radial work, we now plan on exposing the beams. Here are a few shots of it.

Linda standing under the radial roof, showing the radial design that will show in the bedroom.
