First Raising Complete

Well, our first raising for 2013 is finished, and we have some preliminary photos to share.  The fog made for some anxious hours, but in the end I think the results speak for themselves.  The frame is pristine (yes, those timbers are Douglas Fir), and everything turned out awesome.  The general contractor is working on closing in the frame, and things are moving ahead, full steam.

Things are very busy in the shop, and we’re gearing up for the next raising.  Stay tuned – we’ll post more photos from this frame, as well as shots from the next frame.
