how are the girts attached? I think that is the name.  The pieces that the outside boards are nailed to.  I have seen them mortised before, but in the earlier pictures I don't see any mortises for them.  Is there another way to attach them later?

No girts on the door side. There are door posts and headers in housings that were added after the fact. They would have been mortised in, had the fenestration been decided earlier.

Not really a progres update, just a neat shot out the window of the barn.

Working on a gate for the front porch to keep the dogs in.  White oak from my property we milled a few years ago.

I haven't done any timber framing lately, so no new updates really. I had to plane the small door on the 16'x20' barn a little bit, so I took a winter shot of the barn. It's only 12 here now, but wasn't too bad inside out of the wind.

I'm continuously working on plans for this 36' x 62' Ag barn for a winery in California.

 

 

Hopefully I'll have them done very soon.

Just a small frame. A warm up for my next project.

Friday, I finished up a set of plans for a 16' x 32' grist mill building. The mill works will be separate from the mill building frame.

 

 

This frame will be raised in South Boston, VA at a historical museum site.

I hope to visit the site soon.
