Red Mill pavilion time lapse!
A fascinating time-lapse video of the Red Mill project has come our way via Quarterline Media, Noreen Logel (Friends of the Red Mill), Will Denton, and Mack Magee.  It provides powerful insight into what goes on during a project—clouds billowing endlessly, the shifting of timbers, the steady increase of people (both workers and observers), and the inevitable growth of the structure.  Thanks, all, and enjoy!
