I just wanted to post a project and since I haven’t finished my bench yet I thought I would post what is keeping me busy. This is a dentist office in Lawrenceville Ga. I was really excited when I got the contract to frame it because it seems like forever since I have done a big wood frame.

Nice! There is something so satisfying about large scale woodworking!

If that was stick framed, you would have enough room for a shop in the attic… :)

Looks like it will have a nice exterior detail.

Kind of makes me miss framing…ok that feeling just went away again.

And I thought my shed was a big project, lol. Well, just goes to show, someone out there always knows more! Looks like a maze of trussses. Safety first!

?were the trusses all built on site. You don’t see trusses built on site any more here in California. It would take a grade “A” carpenter for a complicated truss like that with so many nonstandard anges.

With the metal gusset plates on the joints, I would say they were factory made.

That said, this is pretty standard stuff in Edmonton. If you break down the shapes, they are not complicated, just boxes and triangles.
