Update on Timber Frame - Got the Roof On

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Update on Timber Frame - Got the Roof On

Postby Bigschuss » Mon Nov 21, 2011 7:34 am

I posted a thread about my 12x16 sugar shack a few months ago. http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=64671

Thought I'd post up some pics of the work on the shack since then. I added a lean-to for my Cub on one side and 1x10 shiplap pine. Got the windows framed out and the cupola flashed and roofed.

The next step is to add a lean-to on the other side....this will be a timber frame lean-to used as a deck and and wood storage...and get a roof on it!

Thanks for letting me share.

All I can say is simply a wonderful example of pure craftsmanship. :applause: I love the joinery, classical yet modern even in it's simplicity. Beautiful job :!:

Thanks for the kind words everybody. It's nice to know that this kind of thing is appreciated.

I was going to stick build it, but last spring I just thought that this would be my chance to fulfill a dream of building a timber frame. It took the whole summer to cut the joinery, but man I'm glad I decided to do it this way. It has been one of the most rewarding things I have done.

And as BigDog mentioned....it should stand for quite some time!

Every time I look at this, I am jealous. I lived in smaller and much less well built homes. I am sure not gonna show this to any of my tractors. they are just going to have to be content with what they have.

Nice. Did you take a class on timber frame building?

There are several firms that give timber framing classes. Always thought I would like to take one of the classes.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks again fellas.

It does take patience. I had to learn not to be in a hurry this summer and really just enjoy the craft. Plus, precision is a MUST. If anything is even and eighth off, parts won't fit, and the frame will end up out of square, and raising day will be a disaster.

Eugene, I basically read al I could for about a year before this project. I designed the frame myself using plans from books. And then yes, in June I took a basic 2 day workshop, where for the first time I actually got to cut a few joints. That gave me the confidence to then go for it.

The frame is half lumber from my own property that I cut, and half lumber that I bought...spruce, pine, and hemlock.
