This gorgeous hemlock timber framed sugar shack sits in a forest in the Eastern Townships, and is accessible only by trail. As no heavy equipment were able to access the site, the whole frame was raised by hand, using ropes, pulleys and a chain hoist. After taking the hand raising course at Heartwood with Gregg Mullins, Patrick put to use everything he was taught and led the team into hand raising this frame. Patrick even calculated, designed, and built the 'A' frame out of glue laminated pieces. This frame was built while at Hamlet Heavy Timberworks from Rigaud.
