Thanks Jim, I like to call it “finish framing” as it has to happen thru the build way before trim>

Houses 1 & 5 and 2 & 3 are davidfosterarchitects.com Seattle times home of the month winners. Cedar hand picked from Blackstock Lumber Seattle where they have a great selection of many varieties of wood. The # 4 house is a Barbara Rose Lee architect Seattle creation. Both have a modern European style that blends rich wood accents with modern materials. I have built several houses for David Foster including his own house/office in West Seattle along with a great group of craftsmen, lots of fun & a great opportunity to learn high end building practices.

They look Great.Will the finish stay “natural”. I would hate to have to paint them; even with a spray gun.

This is beautiful workmanship. Great job.
There are times I miss doing renovations. It’s there I am most comfortable, just due to experience. I spent a lot of years doing that.

With other fine craftsmen I remember blowing my back out digging the final footing trenches, then the foundation pour, then everything else except the final trim. What a great job. Great Architects make our life better and they rely on dedication from us. The beams were located with precision as with most everything so the end product was easy to finish & trim out. My favorite new house!

Torsion Gusset I beam, the newest of Truss Joist Eye incorporated but lets not get all tech like, it’s all about tension & compression separated by a simple web of OSB to keep the stresses from each other. Much like a marriage counselor. I have a carpenter friend that says, this MDF is more like MFD, mostly Freakin dust.
