Putting the Tent Back Up – green oak barn

Tuesday 12/1/21

Today was damp so we decided to get the repaired tent back up.

Some final repairs were required to one of the connectors.

We erected the repaired frame on the slab.

Put on the repaired canvas.

And tied two of the posts back to timbers that were screwed to the wall.

We then laid out the lefthand end wall plate and the lefthand sections for the front and rear walls.

Tomorrow I’m by myself. I plan to fettle this joint, complete the one at the other end and cut the ends off the front and rear wall plates.

It’s great to have our covered working space back. Good day.
