Trish and I are still hiding out in the West Indies, waiting for spring to arrive in Floyd, but progress continues. This past week the guys put together another octagon timberframe for the second floor of the “minor tower”. This one, because it is a bit bigger than the ones below, and because the driveway is extremely muddy, had to be put together on site.

This section is all walnut, cut partly from Crooked River Farm, and partly from neighboring farms. All sustainably harvested, and all produced with local craftsman.  Should be really cool once it’s finished.
