If you go to the forum here about meetings and events you'll see a post there from me about the barn raising tomorrow in VT. There is a small picture there of the barn. But if you go to the TFG (Timber Framers Guild) web page and click on the page about this event and then click on the download registration info you'll get a nice view on the first page in PDF format of the barn and you can see the principal purlin system used to hold up the common rafters which are grayed out. Just some info incase you wanted to see other drawings. Jim
Whatever you do, have fun doing it!

I've got " A Timber Framer's Workshop" bu Steve Chappell,  "Timber Frame Construction" by Jack Sobon, "Building The Timver Frame House" by Tedd Benson with James Gruber

I have  a pretty good grasp on the basics it's the details that catch me up. Having detailed cutting plans shure makes it better than working off simple sketches.

BTW My little shed dos have one extra hole in it... ;D

A good timberframe planning book with beam details.

The Timber Frame Planning Book. -- Housesmith Publishing.
Steward Elliot

Has the plans for 12 timberframes with beam details. Covers timber selection, beam stress and goes through some of the stress and beam sizing calculations.

Its a good book to flip through to look at the joinery / joint design used in the building of a  complete structure.Though it does not say or I did not read this - it looks like the authors measured / may have disassembled 12 frames and drew up the details so they could be recreated.
Lot of stuff..
