Wow, that is looking excellent!  I love the massive tie beams.   8)

Nice machine too, I like the 110's.  Did I take the timber framing workshop with you a couple years ago?  I think so.  Your making a lot more progress on your project than I am on mine....

It's nice to see the pics, I wish I came across this earlier when you started it.

matt, thanks, was it at Heartwood?  Probably, I was there with my friend Colin- guy with a huge beard, you'd remember him. I'll head over to your gallery to see what you've got going. All the best, and hope to run into you again!

Beautiful barn.  Keep the pictures coming.  Did you mill the timbers.  What species?

Here are a few new images showing 'dormer' construction, sheathing, 4" polyiso insulation, 2 man chainsaw for cutting rafter feet, venting, and sheathing again. Small gantry made of pipe staging was invaluable for lifting rafter pairs into place. Basically we had the ridge up and used this gantry to place the valley rafters, then pre assembled rafter pairs and rolled them into place.

Been following this thread for a while. Kinda of wondered what happened or where you went. Looks like you were working your tail off! Barn looks great and is a true piece of art. You should be proud, it will be standing long after we are gone. Really impressive job you have done.

Good job there.
Where's the stone archway going?
Looks like a piece of real crooked wood,like a corkscrew,behind the arch,on the right,next to the ladder. What's the plan for that?

Looks GREAT!  Nice job!  I'm also interested in that stone archway.
