August 15th, 2009 by Tim

wetufront_newsizeHello everyone,

I wanted to show you the progress we have made on the Neeswetu so here go’s hope you like what I wrote.

I guess I should first tell you everything we do on the site is done slowly.  We do this so as many visitors can see it as possible because we don’t do a lot of these things every year.   We only  building houses every 3 to 5 years.

We have finished the top of the house, what we call the cap, witch is the very top of the house.   We are now working on the ends of the neeswetu and will be the last step in roofing the house.

This house will have flat ends not round like some of the other houses on the homesite.   The bark we are using is Popular bark and today, we go to Waldorf  Maryland to get big sheets of bark today to a saw mill that select cuts in a forest that has 100 year old trees.

I have posted some picture below click on read the rest of the post blow to see them.  I also would like you to comment on the blog click comment and leave me your comment and I will answer you.
