Sunken feature building Starts

I have recently been commissioned by Poole museum service to build a Saxon sunken feature building at Upton Country park . This build will include some of the timbers salvaged from the old roman building on the site which sadly burned down.

I will post a picture soon of what i hope the building to look like on completion. This week we have been working with Volunteers Julie, Sam and Steven on timbers and assessing soil conditions on site.
