    minehart gap, Nice looking shack. Like that you didn't go with the typical rooflines. Looks like you have some loftish storage space.
    2018 Built the sugar shack, produced 10.5 gallons (converted some to sugar,& cream). taps varied 45 to 50
    2017 Built 2x4 arch for a divided pan, 8.5 gallons from 30 taps increased to 42 taps during season.
    2016 Produced 3 gallons & 1 quart Syrup, Block arch & 3 buffet pans, 12 taps
    2015 Thought about tapping

    red dorakeen, thank you. The timber frame for my sugar shack is actually a timber frame from back in the 1800’s that was last used as a pig pen on a farm. There was a second floor on it originally but they were shorter then and I had to walk hunched over along the sides of the upstair so I made a dormer to give more head room. The plan is to use the upstairs to hold a permeate tank once I get a RO and a bed for late boils.
