Framework Takes Shape

With the concrete footings set, we could finally move ahead with the framework.

Nate braces the roof ridge.

Building this sculpture required an endless amount of cutting and drilling, and some questionable fashion choices. 

One of only a couple of deviations from standard fence hardware: a custom fitting made in the shop makes the "bay window" roof peak possible.

Work on site was practically non-stop for four weeks, with any shop work squeezed in late at night.  Here, a custom-rolled, very heavy schedule 40 pipe needs some adjustment for a perfect fit over the doorway to Ghost House.  My neighbor's driveway bollards prove to be up to the task (barely).
