The Great Oak Pavilion Construction Photos

Week two of construction on the timber frame pavilion at Ferry Farm continued cold and very wet. The weather improved throughout the weekend with actual sightings of the sun, but the giant mud hole was fast becoming a lake. While work continued on shaping timbers, Saturday afternoon saw the erection of the first sections of the pavilion. Work continued on a cold and blustery Sunday. The pavilion was completed on time, Tuesday, April 5.
