Framing 101

Frame 01I'm convinced that Neil is enjoyong this project so far because it's been an excuse for us to buy some power tools! With our new nail gun, we managed to build our frame components in one day. And although I too enjoy a good power tool, after I shot a nail in the vicinity of Neil's foot, we both agreed that perhaps that was NOT the power tool for me. So, back to the saw I went!




Our next step was to set up our wood components outside. At the show, we will build the structure on a series of platforms to make it feel like it is on a hilltop, but for now, we set up one platform. The frames went up relatively easily and the plywood finished off the walls.  I can't way to see how the stone looks!
