Woolshed at Old Errowanbang

Woolshed at Old Errowanbang

70 kms south of Bathurst

New South Wales, Australia

Looking into the central area where wool is sorted and pressed. The involvement of an architect is reflected in the very high standard of workmanship. For example, the entire shed is constructed of cypress pine, a timber resistant to attack by white ants which are a constant threat in Australia. Where timber is likely to come into contact with wool all timber is dressed and chamfered. Other such attention to detail, which enhances the function of the building and comfort of the shearers, can be found throughout the structure.
