Hi, I'm organizing a series of natural building workshops at an education center in upstate New York, while we build a small cottage on the property. I'd like to incorporate a reciprocal roof in the design, but I've never done it myself. What I would really like to do is find a fellow natural builder with experience who would be interested in leading a reciprocal roof workshop at our project. Please PM me if you're interested. Or if you can recommend someone to me, please post here and let me know!

- Ben

Hi Ben,

My "hat" is in the ring of offerings. Feel free to vet me by googling in quotes, "Jay C. White Cloud," and I would be glad,(whether I can do the workshop or not) to help you vet any other viable co facilitators. I would suggest they all share here on your post, as this is a public venue, and if there skills are up to public scrutiny, they can share their skill sets and possible syllabus outlines here in what they would teach for such a course. Follow up "review" after workshop to be posted here with pictures, also would be a great thing.

I prefer timber framing to most Reciprocal roofs, yet they are brilliant and can be done well in the primitive modalities, depending on the applied architecture and possible tectonic loads.

Regards,

j

Hi Jay, that's a really good idea! Maybe in a few months we'll be updating this thread with photos from the workshop! I'll PM you some more details now. If anyone else is interested teaching a reciprocal roof workshop, let me know!
