WOW Jim.  You certainly have a gift.  I scrolled thru looking at all of these pictures and the last ones here of the new room extension off of the house are just tremendous.  I'm sure it is always very gratifying to see the designs that you give your customers come to life!  Every now and then, one of our tree care clients will ask us about taking timber from their property that we are cutting down and saving it to turn it into patio furniture, small bridgeway, etc.  Now that I know who to turn to for the design work, I will definitely keep your email handy!

This past Friday, I completed a set of plans for a customer in South Boston, VA for a 16' x 32' frame that will be used as a grist mill building. The mill works are all separate to the frame design.

Here is a view of the frame in black and white from the printed pages:

 

 

The were suppose to start cutting joints for this frame this past weekend.
I hope to visit the site soon.

A while ago, I got a picture of the frame that was erected in South Boston, VA:

 

 

Some time I hope to be able to visit it again.

Last May, I did a design for a fellow in VT who wanted a barn/shed so he could have solar panels on the roof.
Here is a shot of the design:

 

 

The customer just sent me two pictures of his project.
One is from last summer while he was building it:

 

 

And one is of the completed project:

 

 

I'd say it came out quite nice.

Jim I see only colar ties on the first and last rafter, what point does one need colar ties on all rafters.

The reason for the collar beams on the ends is for a nailer for the siding.
(smart ash answer)Collars are needed when the engineer says so.

Collar ties actually prevent the rafters from pushing the walls out and collapsing the building.
The small ties up high don't add a lot of strength but it looks like there are some joists going all the way across at the poles so that should help.
There are a lot of Old Loggers.
There are a lot of Bold Loggers.
But there ain't a lot of Old, Bold Loggers!

That statement is true, but it all depends on where the collar is in elevation over the plates.
The timber framers guild engineering council has done some structural analysis of collars in structures. And found that unless the collar is within a foot above the plate it is in compression. Thus keeping the rafters from sagging inward. From a foot down they are in tension holding the rafters together.
