Timber Frame is Finally Done!

Mon Nov 19, 2012 10:11 am

Hello gents....

I posted a few topics about the building of my timber frame last year. Just wanted to post an update now that I have finally finished the building.

My summer project was getting doors and windows in, staining the building, and finishing the root cellar. This was a 2 year project that began in 2010 with the site work and the installation of the foundation. The root cellar has 2 rooms divided by a door so I can control temp. better. This will have many uses...from storing vegetables and apples, to keeping sap cool before I boil, to letting an early season deer age properly before butchering.

This building began life as a bunch of rough sawn white pine and spruce, half of which I took off my land. I then spent the summer of 2011 in my garage cutting the joints....

Finally...windows, doors, trim, hardware, and stain and she is all done. Took these this weekend. I'm ready to boil some sap and make some great memories with my friends and family!

Blair,
Hats off to your workmanship; you're a true craftsman!! You have constructed a fine looking, as well as durable, building. You should be proud.

Do you know how long veggies will keep down in your cellar?

Nice work. :applause:
I liked the detail on the joint. Also enjoyed the peek into your workshop / Man cave.

Wow, what a great job. I would love to be bale to do that, but I think I lack certain skills, and a whole lot of knowledge. Beautiful job, Blair!

Blair:

I have said it before and I will keep on saying again... beautiful craftsmanship and an absolutely gorgeous building. I really love it and wish I had the patience to do that kind of post and beam construction. I saw one under construction on the way to Cecil's, it was somewhere off the 95 in Mass - right off I thought of this project and was wondering how it was going. Now we know. Simply gorgeous.

I like that old huge B&D 1/2" drill as well. Neat tool and lots of power. I like your clamps -- them will work nicely. The wooden mallet - is that an ECE mallet?

Very Very Nice. I have done a little of everything you did there but not all for one ground up project. Lots and lots of hard work there.
Wow, wow. That is fantastic. Good for you.

Where did the scarf end up??
Do you have pics of the inside.
Reminds me of a Sobon shed.
