More photos of dry stone kayak storage structure.

I posted photos of the beginning of this project back on November 17th. I noticed someone commented immediately afterwards requesting to see more pictures of the structure. Here are pics of the progress on the dry stone chamber up to Tuesday this week. The wrought iron arch door is a nice touch, don't you think? The pintels which act as pivots for the door to hinge on  are buried deep into the sides of the arch opening. The form is in place and held up with eight two by fours. The stone voussoirs around the door will sit slightly above the frame of the door so that they are supporting themselves and not likely to be pushed up by the frame if it is moved independently of the arch.
