Timber Frame Fishing Lodge 2

Another amazing day in Labrador!  We assembled and raised three trusses today (two before lunch).  We spent some time sorting through the various piles, preparing for the next few days.

We’re pleased with our progress, considering we have to man-handle every timber into place.  The main pile is slowly disappearing and the smaller piles are dwindling down.  We’re looking forward to getting the valley rafters up and in place – the valleys converge at the face of the 12′ wide x 27′ high, river stone fireplace.

One thing that we need to mention is the royal treatment we’re receiving from the camp staff.  The food is incredible, and there’s plenty of it.  For supper, we were treated to oven-baked cod fillets, with scalloped potatoes and peas.  Dessert was a choice between gorgeous apple and scrumptious cherry pie.  Tomorrow, we’re having Eggs Benedict for hot breakfast and barbequed ribs for supper – I’ll be heading home at least 20 pounds heavier!

Stay tuned for more cool photos.
