Abridged Designs

On Saturday of the DSWAC weekend retreat in the Caledon hills we experimented with several different designs for arched dry stone features for the upcoming Rocktoberfest using small stones. This miniature bridge was cleverly constructed by Doug Ball and Angus E in a window opening between the dining hall and the enclosed porch. In an effort to prove how strong arches can be I offered to step up on it and try to put my full weight on it. The tiny bridge didn't collapse, proving what a good design it was and how well it was constructed. The window opening, on the other hand was designed a bit too small.
