After the octagon timberframe went up, two more frames went up and in place.  Both of these are heartpine.

First, another level of the tower.

In the front right of the picture above, you can see the pyramid that is to go on top of the tower.  We intended to put it up, but after watching the tower getting taller and taller, we decided the better part of valor was to finish the pyramid and put in place after it’s got roof framing, flared skirt, ox-bow windows, and copper roofing in place, and then lift it up.

Finally, the timberframe roof for the master bedroom went up.
