Hi Ken

Nice to hear from you,
It looks l Ike you have a great project on the go there, wish I was closer would be visiting the site.
I envy your older history compared to North America, which it seems is a melting pot of different nationalities who immigrated from about 1500 on
Where I reside here in Canada german influences predominated, my family immigrated in 1710 from Germany to England to New England, and then finally up into Dundas county in Ontario, we stayed loyal to thebritish crown during the war of independence because of the help we received at the previous time by the queen of England at that time.
It is great once again to hear from you, the U.K. Is fortunate to have you and you family part of their heritage movement

Hi Richard,

Thank you for those kind words and historical background information.

I have now learned that training for the Saxon Hall project will likely be held at McCurdy & Co's workshops at Stanford Dingley, Berkshire, England sometime in June 2022. This is a terrific opportunity for those persons looking to break into the field of timber framing to learn basic skills and maybe more importantly to make contact and network with England's premier timber framers.

Ken


Looking back to see the way ahead !

Further information on the Saxon house build project at Cogges Manor Farm has now been issued including :-

Blenheim Palace has very kindly donated 30 trees to make the frame and these trees will be selected by McCurdy & Co along with the Cogges project manager.

McCurdy & Co has submitted plans to Cogges Manor Farm for their review and has confirmed that opportunities will exist for 12 volunteer carpenters to work with McCurdy & Co in Reading, Berkshire, England.

For additional information as this emerges check out the Oxfordshire Woodland Group Twitter feed


Looking back to see the way ahead !
