Big House

I better get these pictures posted before we loose Internet again its been off all day. We finally had the opportunity to look inside the building. It seems smaller that what I expected for a big house in terms of floor space.
The above photo is of an outside wall where it meets the roof. Another basically tree is used as a beam.

Above is looking at where the front door will be looks like a cool archway.
Below ? storage.

Below more of the main beam and its support beams.

Standing near the front door looking down the the length of the big house.

I want to see what it will look like when it is all finished. It is supposed to hold 500 people, and still have room for the dancers. We will see.

It is really hard to sleep when you are very rudely awaken in the early early early hours on the morning (1something am) by a thunder storm. The first one I don't think it was the lightning that woke me up but it was the thunder. It was so loud that it shock the house rattled the windows and I think the whole town was awake. It was bad enough that some thought it might be an earthquake but the next lightning and thunder came not long after. The storm lasted a few hours and no I didn't get to sleep until after. Each time I started falling asleep another BANG and flash of light.

More long house

The Guys have been really busy working on the longhouse but since it looks like this and they are working on the interior we don't actually know what is going on.
