Post Green Woodworking Cruck
on: March 29, 2015, 08:53

In 1998 the Argyleshire Green Woodworkers Association built an open sided 3 bay cruck frame at Barnluasgan (which was part way up a mountain) where they could indulge in pole lathing whilst being protected from the never ending warm west coast rain (but not midge bites !).


The cruck frame was cut by Henry Russell -


and the roof is covered with cut plank larch shingles. Damp patches were evident on the underside of the interior face of some of the larch shingles probably due to leakage through / around knots.


Of more serious concern was rainwater tracking seen to be landing on the stub tie beam ends and then running down bracing to where this meets and joints in with the cruck blades. Pictures shown on the AGWA website (link above) shows that a wooden gutter is now in place to catch and divert eavesdrop rainwater.
