This is a 2900 square foot house we cut and raised in Red Bank, NJ december 2012/ Jan 2013. It was designed by me and cut by myself and my employee. There is no metal holding it together…...just wood joinery and oak pegs

Awesome. What do you use to cut the mortise/tenons on that stuff? I’m afraid to ask what it costs to do framing like this.

I really like your attention to detail. The series of connecting beams with an arc look absolutely great! Other guys would have left them straight, you added a little touch that makes it immensely better….

Welcome to LJ’s

Beautiful work. It’s obviously very strong construction or you wouldn’t build it that way.
