Recently I completed several frame drawings for Forestry Forum members.

Here is a shot of a two car garage and woodworking shop with outside sawmill roof for a member in WI:



And here is just the frame:

The garage had a limit by the town to be only a certain per cent of the house size.
So to get it right it came out 21' 1" wide by 31' 1" long.
The outside roof for the sawmill is 26' long and stick out 8' beyond the walls which will be 2x6 outside the frame for insulation.

Thanks for asking.

Well it is a timber frame building and you need to know how to cut joints and erect the frame using mortise and tenon joints being held in place by pegs.
It is not a stick built thing.

I can draw a stick build one if you want one.

This frame is 24' x 30' with 11' high plates on the sides.

Posts are oak, rafters are either cottonwood or ash. Gable end boards are cottonwood.

My latest frame design for a FF member.

This is a 16' x 24' Pool Screen house to be built in Atlanta, GA.



Let me turn your ideas into plans so you can cut your own frame.....

Looks great.
I would add some overhang on the gable ends to better deflect the water from getting at the siding. But that may just be me. ;)

The roof deck board can be extended some. I'll pass that on to the customer.
Thanks for the tip.

There was more to the deck then I drew.

I was hired only to do the railing design.

He gave me the outside dimensions of the "D" shaped logs and the deck dimensions.

He did the base logs and decking himself.

Just wanted to bump.

I bought two plans from jim recently, one stock plan, and one custom plan to house two large trucks.

Plans came through fast, clear, and jim answered any dumb questions a new guy can have. 

Thanks again for the services

I recently helped a client with milling his own logs for his design of a screen porch.

 

 

And then I taught him how to cut the joints to erect his frame.

Yesterday, with a crane, they erected the frame.

 

 

Frame erected:

 

 

It's nice to see your design complete and standing.

If you'd like to get a set of plans from me, let me know and I'll do my best to help you.
