...and the nice weather continues...

This new project we are working on is turning out pretty cool. We built this huge timber truss, (well, Chris and Scott built it, I just drew the pictures for them). These are 10x10 Douglas Fir Timbers. the joints are mortise and tenon held together with oak dowels. Above is a picture as it was built and ready to stand in place.




Once we were ready we had Sam come with the crane. Always a fun time:





And here it is with the ridge beams in place:




Now we need to figure out the dormers and gables and get the perlins in place. Then we will be ready for the roof decking...probably just as the snow starts....
