The Kinstone Cordwood Chapel continues on pace to completion. Weekend workdays are helping to finish the walls. Motifs with a nature theme are being placed in the walls: night, day, stars, wind, river, trees.
Here are some pictures of the first completed 12 foot section.
The six sided chapel walls are being completed at a natural building pace.
- The tension ring helps the roof to maintain its structural integrity.
- The river wall begins its meandering through the chapel.
- The river wave gives a sense of ebb and flow.
- The scaffolding crew is proud of their work. The large Cedar rams horns are visible on each side near the corners. .
