The Bar Harbor Raising - TimeLapse

We thought you might enjoy seeing this.  It's the barn raising in Bar Harbor and no one is slacking ☺

We had to share these two pictures.

This is dad presenting Sam his very first chisel.  It's in a handmade case with his name on it.    Sam is so excited about being an official Northford Timber Framer!  Dad said that when Sam's name was called to come up, he literally flew up there!  He was given the week off from school with his teacher's blessing.  He was to report back and tell the class all about his barn raising experience and what an experience he had ☺
 This picture is of Sam and his dad putting Sam's chisel to good use.  
So until next time...............

Love ya lots♥

  11. Loved the Time Lapse camera, what a great idea. How wonderful for Sam to have his own chisel. Our two boys loved nothing more than helping Daddy when he was building or fixing something and they had their own sets of tools. Hugs. Susie xx

  12. Crikey ..... how good was that? I think you deserve a blog of the year award. It reminded Mum of an old movie she saw called 'Seven brides for seven brothers' with Howard Keel. She loves Howard Keel. AND what a lovely tribute on your page for dear, dear Fern. Mum only knew her for a short while but really loved her. She will be missed. Dear Tom ..... I hope we still hear from him from time to time.

  13. Great time lapse video.....Lord preserve us and protect us we've been drinking whiskey for breakfast, that's a catchy little tune. Congrats to Sam.

    Aroo to you,

  14. How cool to see the barn go up in that video.

  15. Love the video and love even more Sam getting his first chisel. Four paws up to the teacher for being OK with time off from school for this experience.

  16. That was great! We really enjoyed watching!

  17. That was so cool! We especially liked seeing how they hoisted the bigger frames up to the higher level using the ... hoisting thingie.
    Go, Sam! How cool for him!
    Yours sincerely,
