Raise-the-Roof Work Week
August 20, 2018 - August 24, 2018
Phase two of the new chapel timber framing will be done the week of August 20 – 24. The four top plate beams will be cut and set on the already erected partially complete walls.
Come help Jay Budde and other volunteers for all or part of the week. We will need help raising the heavy beams to the top of the walls and then installing the rafters and roof decking.
Even if you are inexperienced in building or timber framing, you are welcome and encouraged to come be part of the Hermitage “Builders Circle” community. Accommodations are limited this week, so call for information on available lodging. You can always camp with Jay, who will be leading the work days.
There is no program fee for this event. Please email jay at email@example.com for more information on the work days and firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange lodging and meals. The work days will occur rain or shine.
