Unique frame
« on: March 19, 2011, 12:51:41 pm »
Has anyone seen a frame like this?

http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,49751.0.html

I am looking for more info to see if it is tied to any ethnic community in the midwest.

And please remember to  visit the barn section of the forum...post photos or stories of your barns...or post a question...we are here to share!   ;D

Thanks,

Rooster

It does not seem all too different from those in this area of Ohio though I have not seen a LOT of old barns maybe a couple dozen or so but the framing in there seems rather typical.

Mark,

The unique thing about this frame is the beam that runs parallel to the top-plate.  These beams connect the tie-beams and are connected to "stub-tie-beams" that rest on top of the top-plate and the rafter tails rest on these stub--ties.  Do the barns in your area have these extra beams and stub ties?

I can see that beam you are talking about but cant see too well how they attached the beam to the outside wall top plate, appears to be beam sized runners every few feet between the inner beam and top plate.   That would help to reinforce the barn in high winds (lateral movement) but would add a lot or work & added timber.   Is the barn by chance up on a hill in windy area?  not sure if there are a lot of support in the vertical there and maybe add more weight to the structure which again would help in the wind loading & some in the vertical up-lift from winds.
