Yes, you are correct, it has no bracing, and I'm glad you brought that topic up. The picture at the top of this post also has no bracing. And it also does not appear to use M&T joinery- probably just screws/lags.At what point, in a structure like this, is bracing required? In this structure, 12x16 w/ 9' posts, how would the braces be sized?
That is a lot of joinery for a small structure. As a newbie you may be surprised how long it takes to do. You may want to rethink whether it is all necessary after you get started. Talking here from personal experience as a newbie.
Thanks Jim. Would a three-way joint like this be OK?
Yes, I have adjusted them since I started. Initially, I had 1" holes, 1" from the edge. Now, I have 3/4" holes, 1.5" from the edge.
Normal peg hole location is 1 1/2" off the shoulder of the tenon timber

Jim, with the square rule method, (as illustrated in the maroon book), the timbers are pared down from 8x8 to 7x7s at the joinery. So, even though timbers are pared down to get to the perfect timber inside, the rule of thumb, therefore, always applies to the rough timber?
