Yep...Best way of learning is teaching...hopefully after I get my little smokehouse done to where I can organize and use my tools...then I'll set up and timber frame another shed..probably a 10x 14
storage building...

Great Thread
I Have learned a lot.

My wife wants me to build a 2 storey play house for the inevitable grand kids and wants it to be a timber frame rustic little house. Foot print will be about 10 by 16 ish or what ever comes close.  It will be built by this German guy that has bit of a reputation for building things so it aint comin apart in this life time or the next, will support at least the weight of full grown cow and will simply change locations should a tornado strike. If any one has a plan or knows where i can get one please let me know.

If you ain't livin on the edge you are takin up way to much room. Of course at my age if I get too close to that edge any more theres a good chance I may fall off.

 I have done a few small timber frame structures, am self taught with the help of a few books, and I appreciate what has been written here.

 One thing I might add is that for repetitive pieces such as braces I make masonite templates that I hang from the shop rafters until such time as they come in handy again.
