In case you were away from your computer last Friday, our colleagues in Media Productions captured  the frame raising from start to finish.  While you still missed a beautiful fall day in Williamsburg, the link below will bring you up to date on construction progress at the Armoury! 

Watch the video.

    It was definitely fun to watch! Hope that the construction details of the buildings and especially the forges are shared someday. The way those new forges draw is amazing.

    SHEW….CLOSE ONE!1 As I watched the video, I guess I see why OSHA requires hard hats on construction projects! Those wall studs that came lose and fell, REALLY coulda done a nmber on ones head had one been in their vacinity! I’m glad no one (worker, emplyee or visitor)was under them!

    I’ve always wondered why these structures were built so close together. Certainly it wasn’t for lack of space. Just wondering.

      We have our suspicions. It may have been to enhance security. It may also have been (especially since the center of the yard appears to have been so open) that it was for lack of space, but that the activity in the center of the yard did not require structures.

    Hello! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and brilliant style and design.

    We will be there in three weeks. I am so looking forward to seeing in person the things I have watched being built on this site.
