Just a couple of pictures of the roof framing my helpers and I did on my other son’s house this past summer. It is a pretty cool house with a very open floor plan and wood fired radiant heat in the floors. It was a real family project with my older son doing the design and the younger (owner of the house) doing all of the excavation. We hired a couple of local and younger carpenters to round out the labor force. I designed and built the timber trusses shown in the first picture and did as much of the other work as I could ( my balance ain’t what it used to be) I also did all of the heating and plumbing. I am now putting on the finishing touches like hanging doors and the base boards. I will add some pictures of the cherry trim used in most of the house when I get a chance. This is such a great forum you can blow your own horn and none seems to mind. I love looking at all of the great shop made tools and fixtures post here.
