It’s been a long time, too long, in posting the advances at Eagleyew.

As detailed in my first two posts, the foundation was poured, the Faswall wall was layed and poured and then came the timber frame.

A few weeks ago, the Douglas Fir from Eaglenest were felled, cut, milled on site and sent to the Woodland Boatworks and Timberframe shop for preparation and application of a wood protecting compound (Woodbliss).

Then the prepared timbers were shipped to the Eagleyewcontruction  site and pre-assembled before building as shown bellow:

Once all necessary preassembly was done, a crane was hired to help in erecting the frame. In a single day, the first part of the building was achieved, as shown bellow:

Work pace is accelerating, with more people attending Eagleyew. Next step, the stave wall, coming tomorrow.
