Midlothian Council have granted us planning permission to build our woodland hut, and work begins this July!
Mark Vrionides will be running the first stage of the build as a Roundwood Framing Course. Come and learn how to construct the frame for any building from logs straight from the woods. This method is particularly great for compost loos, huts, cabins and any kind of shack really, but can also provide the frame for houses and barns.
Mark will cover everything you need to know to build your own roundwood frame, including:
timber selection and preparation
marking and cutting joints
Saturday 30th June – Friday 6th July, 9.30am – 5.30pm
Please get in touch if you can’t afford it, there will be some subsidised places, especially for local residents.
The Three Hares Community Woodland is an eighteen acre site just outside Auchendinny, near Penicuik, alongside the River North Esk.
We’ll meet at the Glencorse Centre [4 Firth Rd, Penicuik EH26 0QZ] and walk down to the woodland.
**WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO HELP MARK AND THE HARES COMPLETE THE BUILD AFTER THE FRAME HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED**
Flooring, roofing, cladding, etc. with guidance from Mark at every stage of the build. Please get in touch if this is more appealing, or if you cannot afford the course. Thanks!
