The East wall being built. Tom is in the grey sweatshirt on the far right, and Jokan is in the rear with the blue and white jacket. The Japanese style wood frame house is meticulously laid out, and each joint is carved before it is put together during a short burst of barn-raising like work called a jotoshiki. Many friends and family came together to put together the pieces and enjoyed each other's company. photo credit: Leslie Matthews Return to Gallery
