Every year I teach a program at North House Folk School with local high schools (Cook County High School in Grand Marais and William Kelley High School in Silver Bay and Two Harbors High School starting in 2016). The program started in 2006 with grant dollars and timbers donated by Hedstrom Lumber Company. Since then the program has been self-supporting by sale of the timber frame constructed each year. We generally spend five full days in the shop cutting the frame and two days fitting and raising. In 2013 we built a covered bridge for the Grand Marais Municipal campground; In 2015 a sawmill shed for Silver Bay High School; In 2016 a scorer's nest overlooking the Silver Bay High School's football field; In 2017 a shop addition for the Two Harbors High School.
