The walnut trunk is now up at 'Animal House'! Towering 15' high, the tree supports the church-like "apse" punctuating the end of a linear series of stalls/party pads for various animals. Originating from the site, the black walnut's bark was scraped off and teak oil was used to enrich the surface. Affectionately dubbed 'The Witches Hut', the apse will also house a massive stone fireplace where humans, horses, alpacas, goats, ghosts, and goblins alike will enjoy the grand space.

Check back in December for an update on the roof thatching process!
