This pavilion is an outdoor center for bocce ball tournaments, picnics, conversation and even summer night sleeping under safari nets. It is also a counterpoint of form to the orderly house, black out-buildings, fireplace and sauna of this retreat. The walls/roof are constructed on a flat concrete slab. The structure consists of two flat trusses of diagonal chords of stock 2x lumber. A 16â€ťon-center 2x4 stud frame stiffens this flat truss and the paper-resin sheathing/siding/roofing makes a stiff 36 foot long plane. The structure was built for $23,000.
