One finished Doocot!

And we did it! Not only that we also did it ahead of schedule. Thanks to Darren and Steve from Ringehay Heritage Building for leading the build and of course thanks to the Prince's Foundation for the opportunity to create a permanent structure on the Dumfries House estate.

The photos don't really do justice to all the hours everyone put in but hopefully they give an idea of the high level of craftsmanship that everyone brought to the table,.

 

 

And it's not over yet. We've now all gone our separate ways to our work placements. I'll be spending the next month learning from the master carver Charles Oldham.
