I'm back with pictures of the completed head frame.  The only thing missing is the sheave wheel and the railings at the top.  Which I'll do when its all put together.

As always comments welcome!

Well I finally put this three part thing together and did the roof rafters.

So wood on top of the rafters and then the TP to finish this part of the building.

Comments always welcomed.

Sorry I'm so late getting back to you Tom.

Thanks for stopping by.  That's the pictures I've been using to do the mine.  I got the plans from Clear Creek Engineering.

Jerry, A well built structure. If it's the "lost mine" wouldn't it show its age more? Or since it is lost we could not see it since it was lost? :-)

Well some progress has been made.  Do to no sun so no beach for us.

The roof is done but not weathered.  Working on the porch and stairs.

Comments always welcome.
