Left: Summer of 2003, Gene and others creating the joinery from plans and remaining old timbers. Tolerances had to be within 1/8”, of which after recreating so many joints in the hot sun—swimming not allowed in the creek—only one fell just short of tolerances. The covered bridge holds a special place in the hearts of many local people and certainly in ours as well.
