This hip-roofed Craftsman gazebo was built on a bluff overlooking Duluth's enormous Lake Superior harbor. Access to the site was challenging, but that was just part of a lovely project. Shortly after the frame was raised, a wedding party stopped by for a brand-new photo op in the gazebo.

Tight, limited-access site. Hand raising. Splayed jack-rafters, compound joinery. Stunning view of Duluth/Superior harbor and its river basin. Participation by kids in Upward Bound.
