Estate Construction: The Cross-Ribbed Vault

….And here are a few more pics of construction on the cross-ribbed roof vault for our new visitor center at the estate.

Amazing how these guys can put the bricks together in a way that, at the end, the whole construction carries itself. The last cross-ribbed vault made with this type of traditional craftsmanship was built on the Mosel in 1967!
