The Faerie House

Topping out

Remember the rafters down on the ground, cut from ash, long and strong; now, one by one, with number 1 propped up by Charlie, they are placed into position.

Twelve rafters for twelve posts, each resting on the next, reciprocal fashion.

And the loose ends are tied together with another ring of ash poles.

The sky is divided into triangles, spiraling towards tall poplars that were planted as small cuttings in November 1988, more than twenty years ago now.
