This is an eastern white pine timber frame great room/ enclosed porch. All fabricated in my shop and installed onsite. Install took about two hours. All joint connections are wood to wood mortise and tenon with the only metal connections being in the post to column detail. Each post weighs around 420 pounds and each truss assembly weighs in the neighborhood of 1450 to 1725 pounds (depending on the truss design), and it has over 128 joints and used about 150 oak pegs
