The character of The Dairy is forming!
We are now getting excited as the character of The Dairy is starting to come together ! The oak beams and joists, just like the ones in The Byre, are taking shape. Take a look at the photos from Oak by Design (of Tockwith, York) of their craftsmen at work. No screws or nails, just pure workmanship as the dovetail joists are all individually made, numbered and just slip together like a glove. Isn't that long piece of oak beam just so beautiful! Can't wait to see them all arrive on the low-loader in early March. Coming very soon ... the new external view of The Dairy and the new fireplace.(February 2017)
