In the fall of 2014 we were lucky enough to head for the Maine coast, to raise a frame we had cut in our shop. The very remote location made timber delivery interesting, and precluded the possibility of a crane raising, so we did everything by hand. The stunning site is surrounded by 500 acres of conserved waterfront land, and fronts on the “Reversing Falls,” where the 25-foot tides create whitewater both coming and going. We finished a day early, and the client even lent us kayaks to explore the bay, with seals popping up around us. What a dream.
