I’m breaking the “completed projects” rule here, because this project is huge and ongoing. I just want you to see some of my design and timber work. This is a 3-story timber-framed barn in Southern Utah. The frame is hybrid, with studwall infill and steel sheer bolts, not mortise-and-tenoned. All the wood except o.s.b. is from the mountain next to town, harvested on National Forest lumber permits. Mostly fir and spruce, with some pine. The floors are 2” t+g planks of clear fir, and are beautiful. When I get married next summer we’re dancing here. Live band, lots of wine and cider, and meat and vegetables from our farm. You’re invited!
