Class of 1965 Bunkhouse

The class of ’65 Bunkhouse is a larger, more complicated building than the previous Bunkhouse. The addition of a raised rooftop monitor (see photos of the finished building below) meant one crew would be responsible for building almost an entire second building with its own posts, rafters, beams and braces.

Volunteers were introduced to how timber frames are put together by raising a small frame cut by Timberhomes that will house a composting toilet for the Class of 1974 Bunkhouse. This allowed workshop participant to quickly familiarize themselves with terminology, and understand how our much larger Bunkhouse frame would be assembled.
