"People first paid honour to a spot and afterwards gained glory for it. Men did not love Rome because she was great. She was great because they had loved her."
GK Chesterton
Monastery Timber Frame, Day 26

Monastery Timber Frame, Day 26


Progress resumes on the monastery chapel project.  All of us reconvened in Conyers last night and began setting up shop today. The timber frame trusses are now staged and ready for raising, but the bell tower's floor, roof, and all important brass bell need tending to first. Quite exciting to enter into the home stretch, and begin seeing the pieces come together.
