Hi all. This is part of my “Complete Housefront Makeover” project. Full blog and tons of progress pics of the whole (ongoing) build are up HERE
This build will have me completely change the front end of a 1970’s viceroy and turn it into (hopefully) a show stopper :)
I always wanted to try a larger post and beam project, and I saw this makeover series as a good opportunity to give it a go. It is all Western Red Cedar, although it dulls tools quickly, it is a beautiful wood to work with.
It’s amazing how well furniture building tools and techniques translate into timberframing….it’s just on a bigger scale!
Thanks very much for looking,
