Post Cruck Woodland Building Site & Photomontage

The Harcourt Arboretum cruck framed craft shelter will be built on a woodland site next to the hazel coppice and charcoal making area.

Image

The cruck frame footprint is 10metres x 5 metres

Image

An existing H&S design has been edited to produce a scale 3bay cruck "placeholder" image that has been mounted on the Harcourt cruck footprint area to provide a photomontage image of how a cruck timber-framed building might appear in this location. The roof shown is steeper & higher than the Harcourt cruck.

Image

It is planned to use the craft shelter for green woodworking activities such as Corracle, Lath and Windsor chair making. See :-

As of 18 June 2013 the cruck building site appears to have had no substantial foundation work done other than what appears to be grass removal by a rotovator.

If it rains on or before raising day this site will become a mudbath !

Despite Chilterns gloomy predictions the intervening weather has been dry and so upon arrival at site on the morning of Saturday 29th June 2013 the foundation pads had been dug, backfilled with hardcore, compacted and pads placed ready to accept the cruck timber frame.

The frame erection crew soon set to work drilling the limestone pads to accept stainless steel post locator rods.
