It’s Officially an Octagon

    All the posts are in place at Sonny’s and the octagon has taken shape. All this was done in just two days thanks to much prep work prior to raising.

    Advanced design, structural engineering analysis, the CNC machine, and carefully inspecting & sanding each timber in the shop helped to ensure a smooth raising thus far.
