Spotlight on Kenny Tuach
We have identified stone, omnipresent on the site, as a major component of our design. Today we were very lucky to have a certified stone waller, Kenny Tuach to teach us the strategies and techniques of dry stone walling. At a location on the trail, near our site, we took advantage of the abundant supply of stones to get a hands-on wall building experience. Joined by Colin Ripley and Marco Polo, we constructed a 2-foot bench composed of carefully placed horizontal stone slabs, and experimented with vertical finishing topers. We all enjoyed the opportunity to learn the strategies and tricks of constructing linear stone structures which are sturdy and will not collapse (anytime soon). We are all very excited to start the real build on site!
