Scratch Builders  Chasing that feeling at Scratch Builders; Monkton, VT!

Unreal day

Closure strip...oof. Atleast the view is nice!

Transit umbra manet opera--the shadow passes, but the light remains.

Hammerin down on Sunday!

Windows def. look better in timber frames!!!

They def. need some tuning, but should be serviceable!!

Frame sits on 2" of good old VT white oak, cuz pressure treated makes me sick, literally!! #vermontforestproducts#engineeredlumberisbeat

Shear with notching. Why 6x8 joists on the flat??? The 1 and only Ed Levin writes: "It is apparent that the wider the timber, the deeper the notch that may be taken out. This sheds some light on the illogical use of square-section joists and beams in traditional structures where it appears that narrow and deep pieces would have served better structurally... It is often the case in timber framing that when a particular member seems poorly designed in structural terms, it makes perfect sense when the demands of joinery are considered." And it looks elegent too!!

Yup it was totally worth it, will I ever do it again.... #rudeboy#timberframe#vermontforestproducts#scratchbuilders

8 quarter t&g loft. Straightened out and nailed home.
