These three photographs will help you understand how the life-size Noah’s Ark is being constructed , By Ken Ham

These three photographs will help you understand how the life-size Noah’s Ark is being constructed.
1. This photograph shows a model of the Ark with the lake in the front. Note that there are three towers (the center tower is 76 feet high) to which the Ark is anchored. The middle tower contains stairs and 4 levels of rest rooms (one for each deck and one for the roof top restaurant). The other two towers contain stairs and elevators. The towers extend 14 feet into the Ark, and the Ark extends 14 feet over the platform on the other side (Ark is 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, 51 feet high). The Ark will be the biggest timber frame structure in the world.
2. This photo is of an illustration that is used at our observation deck showing the Ark structure superimposed on the platform that is built on 103 15 feet high concrete piers.
3. This shows the construction to date. The piers for the bow and the stern sections are yet to be constructed, and two of the three towers are to the second floor, with two floors to go.
The first timber (the first bent) is scheduled to be lifted onto the platform this coming Monday afternoon if all goes according to plan. Keep up to date at www.arkencounter.com. Also, we are now allowing people to visit the ark construction site and view the construction from our observation platform. There is a small fee per vehicle to help cover our costs in providing this. For details on visiting the northern Kentucky site, go to :https://arkencounter.com/visit-the-ark/
