On the cover, hand raising with pike poles at Malabar Farm, Malabar Farm State Park, Mansfield, Ohio, 1994. The heavy strapping fastened across the bent will act as jibs for tackle used later to raise the purlin and wall plates. Haul-back line, presumably assigned but unmanned for the moment, can be seen at the left. Yellow strap from gin pole, guyed outside the picture frame, acts as safety. Photo by Will Beemer. Raising and rigging articles begin on page 4.
