Its been awhile since I've added anything. I've been too busy cutting my frame!

These pictures show the state of things around the last week in May, 2007. I've actually gotten much further since then.

The first timbers I cut were the six principal posts. I cut all six from 7x7 Pondersosa pine. Man, that pine is nice to work with and turns out looking gorgeous.

By the end of May, I had basically all of the principle posts and beams finished:

Oh, and by the way, here are my safety cheerleaders:
