Today I joined the small crew at my friends Tara and Tyler's land to help raise the frame of their home. It was wonderful. I'll write much more about it in the morning when I am less tired and sore, but tonight I will share pictures. We didn't finish the entire job, but with just half a dozen folks, some ladders, and some primitive tools hand-hewn from tree stumps we put together a gorgeous timber framed home Tara and Tyler started over two years ago in Minnesota at a workshop. Today we erected the six posts and beams, joining bits, and braces that created a beautiful skeleton. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this, and to have them in my lives. They are as solid as the house we are building.
