Construction is underway!
Construction of the building to house our new farm shop and cafe has started! Several weeks of moving earth, digging foundations and creating drainage are complete and the foundations are ready to take the oak frame.
A couple of weeks ago we made the trip up to Kirriemuir to the framing yard on the Loch of Lintrathen. The guys at Carpenter Oak have been working their magic on the oak for the frame. Seeing the timber in the flesh brought home how skilled these artisan carpenters are at what they do – our frame is essentially a huge jigsaw puzzle that they’ve created and then dismantled bit by bit with ‘frame marks’ to indicate what belongs where.
This week the frame was finished, ready for loading up and heading to Strathaven!
