Kitchen – Plans are well underway to build a Kitchen down at the Tavern site. A separate kitchen is not only the period option, but will be a simpler single story timber framed building, and something to test out the techniques of the period on a smaller scale. Two members attended a timber framing workshop in the Fall 2013, and we hope to have timber framing in progress in Spring 2015.
