As Jack said in the article, "You only regret the things you never try."

A New Dojo Goes Up

We have just completed crafting and installing our portion of the Dojo project - the trusses, roof and related framework. It was very satisfying to help this owner's 35 year dreams come true by building this large backyard studio (the main room is 30 by 40 with no inner posts). Now our client and his friends can practice the martial art of Kendo in his own dojo.

Here's a link to the new "Dojo" page in our Portfolio:
