Box frame cutting and raising

by on 26 Jun 2011

A photo update of progress on the frame.

Phil and Andrew profiling flying plates

Finishing down braces on the box frame walls

Meanwhile the remainder of the cupola boards are planed

The last hewing is wrapping up

Likewise the last of  the pitsawing

The box frame walls begin to rise above the log walls

Andy pegs a girt

The frame walls continue round

Planking begins on the Lantern

John and crew prepare to install a flying plate

And up it goes

The square of frame walls is complete

Braces go in

Meanwhile Mark fairs dome ribs

Flying plate corner joints are scribed

X-braces are fitted

Lantern planking continues

And tie beams are lifted up.
