My prayers are with him. I like his channel. His approach is very basic and I like that.

Ouch, that's going to hurt for a while.  Wintertime for the next few years will really just not be good. 
Get well soon!

When I visited with Jim on Thursday the 10th, he told me that not all the lumber for the barn was there. He needs to acquire all the rafters. We discussed rafter pitch for the upper roof and the lower roof sides. But he hadn't made a decision on the slopes. I am currently working on drawing to show different roof pitch/slopes to him so he can decide on which he wants. And/or what looks best to him. Just wanted to update you on what we discussed on Thursday, off camera.

Jimdad07 of the forestry forum has been working on a timber frame barn for many months/years.
Recently as mentioned he fell in his barn onto a concrete floor and broke his leg.
He has recently posted an update video:



We all wish you a speedy recovery.

Good luck Jim. Don't be afraid to question the doctors if something doesn't seem right. You know your body better than they ever will.

Your videos have been an inspiration to me. I hope to do my own timber frame one day because of them.

Thanks, and good luck.

Jim

I was horrified when I saw the video.  Please take care of yourself, and get well soon.  Let the working community know when you're ready, and we'll lend a hand when able to get you caught up.

Hello everybody.  It has been a long time since I have checked in here and I apologize for that, between a farm, a job, YouTube and this never ending barn project I find myself lacking for time.  I can say that at least for the next few months I will have all kinds of time on my hands to get caught up.
Where I am today is about another 8 to 9 weeks before I can put weight on it again, I have had two surgeries and every thing went together well.  I am going crazy with sitting around but it could have been so much worse.  I ended up falling 12' through the stairwell hole in the second floor and landed all 220#'s of my weight on my right foot standing up.  Needless to say it did some damage.  Now I am sporting some metal in my right leg but within a few months should be back up and at it.  
As for the barn project, my BIL put a crew together and they are going to get it finished up as soon as I am able to sit out there and direct the work.  The cameras will be rolling, the drone will be flying and this thing will finally get done.  There are only eight timbers left to go on the frame and then the roof can be put on.  As for videos my wife has been putting a few out to keep the channel going and I am working on some design videos and they will be put out as I get them finished.
Thanks for all the well wishes guys.

Sure glad you are recovering well. Falls are no fun, I have taken a few myself and fortunately have never been severely hurt. I do have a close friend who took a fall similar to yours but landed flat on his back. That was 15 yrs ago he has severe brain damage and is still in a nursing home. Please everyone be careful and stay safe.

I know how lucky I am on this one.  It could have been so much worse than it was.

Jim,

I just discovered your channel over the weekend and watched 3 of you videos.  Very inspirational and you are a work warrior.

My thoughts and prayers will be with you and I hope you have a speedy recovery.
