  Here are a few photo's of a cabin I am building down on the White River.  It is setting on cedar stumps and 6x6 power poles.   I cheated and made connections with home made sockets.  The people are pleased so far and I should get it dried in next week.  Goes slow when you are working alone.

Looking good!

Maybe you can come up and help me put up a garage-barn type building.   I would love to do a timber frame but not sure time constraints would allow, still thinking on it.

Arky,
You're a jack of all trades! Where do you get the time to do
all this? I'm asuming you cut all the lumber for this also?
Are those brackets joining the rafters to the posts? Just re-read your post. ::) I guess they are.Cool. Looks great. Keep us posted with the progress. Thanks. Wade

Dewey,
 If you are making a open space like a garage or barn it goes really fast.  I have only worked about 24 hours by my self to get up what you see.  It took most of the time to level and square since I could not pour a footing.  I had to level 12 concrete pads and the cut 12 stumps to the right heigth and fit and notch the 6x6's.
   Yes I sawed all of the lumber for this and what I am doing is trying to saw out 1,000 bdft of lumber (for other orders) before lunch and then go work on the cabin till dark.  It is about an hour drive from here.   I welded up the connectors and will get a close up picture of them.

  Well I am topped out.  I got up there to put up my evergreen limb as tradition dictates and dropped it before I got to the top.  I had to climb down and get it but it is up there now.  I should be dried in this week.   The folks are very pleased with the progress so far.   Makes my wife nervous to know that I walk around up there like that.

Its hard to tell from the pics, but the structure doesn't appear to have any diagonal bracing. This is stiffen the structure for wind shear.

I'm not an engineer but most if not all timberframes I've seen have some bracing between the posts and the cross beams.

Good luck!

Jeff,

And no orange cap. Cannot be the famous "Arkansawyer" can it?
That guy on top of the frame must be part monkey the way he is standing there. King of the mountain.
:)  :)  :)

I personally think he needs to add more helpers to the scenario as he has plenty of ideas and expertise to keep several busy. These connectors he makes are the way to go and add much strength to the building. Me thinks he is an injun ear too.

;D  ;D  ;D

Greg,
 If you will look below where I am standing on the bent you will see a temperary brace.  On the bent behind me you will see a yellow strap pulling the bent in and it has two 2x6 braces in place.   In the back wall you can see the infill studs in place and several of them are solid 2x6' the run the full spread so as to tie it all in.  I only like a few hours of having a Civil Engineering degree so I know a little bit about structures and forces.  What I have learn most has from been going and looking in old barns and buildings that have stood the test of time.  When Hurricane Hugo came through SC I was living there.  I went and spent alot of time looking at the houses the made it through and the one's which did not.  What I learned most was that stapled OSB does not hold up.
    Renee' wanted to go see what I had done and we were going to several places in town so I did not wear an ARKANSAWYER shirt or hat as I do most of the time.   Because when I do several people will stop me and start talking sawing and such.   She just wanted to go spend some time with out kids, Granny and my groupies.   ???  Got to through her a bone from time to time.

  I am beging to think Bibbyman is in cahoots with Baker.  After all they are from the same neck of the woods. ::)
 And a pink cape! DanG it Tom You have no more respect for a man then that.  DonT you guys keep any thing Holy. :(
Ya'll have gone from picking on Wanda's butt to putting me in a pink cape.  Thats OK I will see Bibbyman next week at the show in Mt Vernon.
 Wudman,
 I was living in Socastee and rode the storm out.  I worked in Pawleys Island and the island was split in half from the storm surge.  I left there in "90" and have not been back.  I think often that I should go see how much it has changed.
