Carter's first dry stone wall project.

We were called in yesterday to Carter Gooch's dry stone wall project to help him get the opening done before the snow flies.
There was a huge lintel in the dump load of random stone from the quarry that Carter had earmarked earlier in the project for going over the gate opening to the trail behind his parent's property. Carter cut it to size (taking off about 50 pounds) while Gavin and I added height to the sides of the opening. It was a battle getting the awkward 600 lb. stone up using only scaffolding, but we did it.

Carter is phoning his mom to tell her the news.
