1888 Timber-frame Barn Raising, Sat. Aug. 22, 2009
« on: July 20, 2009, 02:26:13 PM »

It's Offical! On Saturday Aug. 22, we will be doing another barn raising of an 1888, 32ft x 56ft three bay timber-frame barn. The barn raising will take place in S. Central Wisconsin, North of Edgerton, WI, on Craig Rd, between Hwy 73 and Hillside Rd..  We are extending an open invitation for volunteers and spectators to participate. This is a free event.

We will be raising the first bent at 8 AM.  Lunch will be provided for the volunteers. Last time we did something like this we had a few FF members show up to supply some much appreciated muscle and encouragement. 

Hope to see you there.  Everyone welcome.
