Gonna go up!
« on: April 24, 2005, 09:45:27 PM »
Boyz n' gurlz -

Any of you that want to help out, get in the way or just watch - my house frame is gonna go up on the 9th of May.  That's a Monday, and hopefully we can get it up and done (with some minor pre-assembly) in one long day.

So for those of you in the Northeast/New England, and you feel like showing up, e-mail me for directions.  FF Members are most welcome.   

I don't remember if I posted any thing about it, but it's a 1-1/2 story, raised post cape, four-bent splined frame with a separate wing that we will hand-raise.  Eastern white pine timbers, octagonal hickory pegs, white ash splines and black birch and cherry braces.  No metal in this one.  Should be fun.   ;D  :)

Jon

Jon:
Send me the directions and I'll forward them to my students. Some may take the time to come up and help out.
I'll try and make it also.

Update - we got pushed back a day on the crane, but managed to get two bents pre-assembled on the deck this afternoon.  Took us longer to move the pieces than it did to put 'em together and drive a few pegs.   Crane is gonna be here in the A.M., and then we put it in the air.....  Should be all done by late afternoon.

I went up to Jon's raising yesterday, 4 hour ride each way......
Learned a lot from watching others do it using their methods of raising, and assembly.
I took some 60 photos.
I don't have time to upload any today.
But maybe tomorrow.......

To All:
I've created an album and posted some 15 photos of Jon "Engineer" and his framers assembling his frame from Tuesday, May 10th, 2005.

Here is a link to my album: Click here for Link to album showing raising day photos.

These are some of the best and most informative photos.

I left before they got to the roof section as it was a 4 hour ride home and I had to get home to pick up my daughter from scouts, on time......

I've got piles of photos, but reducing them to 15k to fit in the photo gallery ain't workin'.  The image quality goes right in the crapper.   :(

So I'm working on a house web page that will document the whole thing from land clearing to present.  Couple days, I'll post a link.

Jon

EDIT: Here's the link, somebody tell me if it doesn't work.

Wow!

It looks great.

I don't want to hi-jack a thread, bu t .... How long have you been working on your frame?  What kind of wood(s) did you use?

Once again great job.

For no larger a crew (numbers not size of fellas), that thing went up fast! I would have thought you would need more guys than that for a raising.

Very sharp looking frame! Looks like everything fit up very nice.

How much extra did those bent pegs cost you....hahaha?

post pics as prgress gets made! I wanna see that as it gets completed.
