Topping Out!

With the final pieces of the roof in place, we invoked the Scandinavian tree sprites through the traditional Topping Out ceremony; In-keeping with its original roots, we fixed a bow atop the roof and invited the many people who have been involved in the construction of the building to celebrate reaching the highest point of the house.

It was fantastic to be able to share a drink with neighbours, friends and contractors who have all contributed to making the project a reality. It was also a good time to reflect on our achievements and the new skills that we have developed in the construction process so far. It seems a long time ago that we were breaking ground and digging foundations!
