    The work for this year is to replace the end sills and the side sills. Several pocket castings have to be replaced due to damage.

Ben Muncy cuts tendon on one end of side sill to fit into the end sill.




Drilling holes in side sill to accept pocket castings that the wood side posts fit into and holes for the tie bolts to go through.




One side sill in place.




Side sills are about 34 feet long and one piece.
