The Fire Opâ
Our Opâ is a ceremonial space for the community, around the fire where we can gather and honour the great spirit, mother nature and one another. The Opâ was built using blue gum and pine wood from the land. The roof was created with pine planks.
The roof is a reciprocal roof design where each pole rests on the other, having no central support. It was tricky but worked out beautifully.
The Opâ holds around 33 people sitting in a circle around the central fire.
The entire building is built from the wood harvested on the land, cut into planks with our new sawmill.
