We have arches!

I’ll post a full write up on the amazing long weekend we spent with friends helping us build the Quonset hut arches for the guest house – it was a blast and we have really perfected our Quonset-hut-building technique. (Given that this is our third Quonset hut at the Quompound I would hope we’ve learned a few things over the past couple of years!) This was our first time renting a scissor lift, which worked great.

The morning of our last day with the team I got out early, and took my tripod and camera up on the lift before things got underway. So without further ado, please enjoy this early-morning panorama from the top of the scissor lift.
