I recently shared some photos of Sugar Moon Forest featuring the story of the construction of their beautiful hand built Timber Frame sugar shack.
I promised to follow up Part 1 with a peak of the interior revealing the beautiful joinery and evaporator. This blog is the fulfillment of that promise.
I found today's theme "Architecture, the perfect opportunity to share the beautiful details of traditional Timber Frame building.
As you walk up to the sugar shack, you will first notice the handsome oak timber frame porch and the many intriguing joints used to build it.
As you step on the porch you will notice the inviting handmade sign, given to them as a gift, mounted above the door
When you enter the sugar shack your eyes instantly lock on the magnificent and beautiful joinery while you marvel at the intricacy and skilled craftsmanship
The whole structure perfectly straddles a dry stack sandstone foundation, painstakingly fitted by hand.
The floor is made of sandstone placed carefully in a bed of sand and surrounded by gravel.
The wood fired, stainless steel maple syrup evaporator:
Exterior views of dry stacked sandstone foundation and hand milled board and batten siding:
Maple syrup season begins...
I hope you enjoyed my "Virtual Tour" revealing the art, style, science, and design of Timber Frame construction.
The next Sugar Moon Forest blog will show scenes of Maple Syrup production. stay tuned for more!
