Cherry Cruck Frame Pavillion

After two intense months of laying out and cutting this frame we raised it by hand with the help of the Mullen family of Rockbridge County, Virginia. A lovely day in May in Maryland.

A bit out of order and a year and a half late. This is the happy core crew with Vicco taking the picture.

Truly the most beautiful structure I’ve been so intimatiely involvied with creating.

Gratitude.
