Put the bents together, crane them into place, drop in the purlins and connectors, how hard can it be?


Experienced timber framers with  all the proper tools!!  Yes, that’s a big one.

2x’s for bracing…lots of bracing is needed.

Straps and Come-A-Longs?  Bring them ALL.

Who’s running crane guy?  Doug, check.

Great progress, lots more to go.

Here is our finished timber frame pool house.  LOVE it.

Foliage Season in Vermont

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Coming over the North Springfield Dam, pretty view this time of year. Don’t you agree?

Ok, back to the timber frame talk…

Our crew is in Hillsdale, NY this week,  raising this pretty timber frame party barn frame.

Foliage season is the best time for a raising, in our area…not too hot, not too cold.  This location, I’m sure has beautiful views.

Pictures soon, I hope!

Progress 10-13-11 Almost done, wow!
