Frame your barns and raise your “beams” from the ground up, connect vertical frames, and add supportive truss work. Accessorize your barns with stairs, ladders, haylofts, doors, and weathervanes as you learn about architectural principles and styles. In the afternoon, we will build models of 3D boats. Frame and brace your boat structures; add sides, bows, oars, masts, and sails. Listen to Viking myths as you make Viking longboats. Create authentic 18th-century pirate ships with cannons, captain’s decks, masts, and sails.
