Hopefully this gets on the page right.  Here's my slab and my sawmill carriage on the slab getting ready for milling my frame timbers.

Don't know what you guys are seeing but on my end the picture is on its side.  It's right if I check it on the mobile site.

 We are back on the small barn project this week. We put down the floor and finished this morning. It's a sandwich of 1.25" pine, 1/2" cdx and 1.25" wide pine on top. I had a big stack of wide boards left from sawing timbers last summer. The joists are 3" lower than the sills, so the floor is flush with the top of the sill beams. I straightline ripped one edge of all the boards on my mill, then used my Festool rail saw to make runs of consistent widths. There are runs from 10" to 18" wide. Some edges were just the mill sawn edges, and we were still able to keep gaps under a sixteenth of an inch. The Festool was also great for getting really square end cuts on the wide boards.



 

This is an exterior shot of the building, with the compound roof stair tower on the left.

Dave,the op, was gracious enough a couple weeks ago to give me a personal course. That next weekend i knocked out all 8 corner braces. Laying out a corner brace just never sank in until dave showed me, and that had always kept me from going forward in timber framing. Now its a no brainer.  8)

Im working on a wood shed, 12'x16 or 18'. My first tf.

Brendon,
Off topic, but....do you race in the area?  Yellow background with black numbers, are you a "B" rider?  Nice projects by the way!

Dave, are those salvaged iron/steel factory windows?  I am intending to do two large fixed steel windows in a project in that style with an arch on top of each.  I may end up making them myself if I can't find anyone to do it at a reasonable cost.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Yes, they are. They were supplied by the home owner, so I don't know any more than that. They were blasted and powder coated.
