So last year I went with MassArt to Virginia to take part in a collaborative project between said school, the Virginia Military Institute, and the Timber Framer’s Guild.  And this year we did it again.  Most students, more cadets, and more fun.  The students designed the structure for a Habitat for Humanity community that was being built not far from where we all stayed and worked, on the Mullen’s property in Rockbridge County.  It’s always a treat to do these projects, a real escape from life into something idyllic and workmanlike, and this was no exception.  Check out some photos below.
