When working on complex projects with lots of angles and features having good batter frames and guides makes it possible for a large crew to stay on track and build efficiently. This video shows the results that can be achieved from good batterframe usage. As with any project much of the construction set up and methods used were site and project specific, and need to be considered carefully when adapting to other sites.
To learn more about making and using batter frames check out the Stringlines and Batter Frames Workshop April 18, taught by Brian Post.
The walls were entirely built with stone that was gathered from the property. The steps were from George D. Judd and Sons Goshen Stone quarry. More about this project and the methods used will be coming, so stay tuned.
