Timber Frame Barn Raising in NH
« on: August 29, 2003, 06:33:02 AM »
The Timber Framers Guild will be erecting a barn in New Hampshire.
The details of this event are at http://tfguild.org/rendezvous/colbath_homesteadvc/
What's happening is that the guild members and new students will be cutting the joinery on a "hammer beam" frame barn and erecting it.
The workshop/rendezvous starts on Sept 2, and runs until Sept 12th. The raising is planed for Sept 10th and 11th.
Here is a drawing of the frame:

That is one cool barn, don't suppose TFG needs to practice building one say in central IA. I have a spot all picked out. ;D

Here are some photos of the raising in progress on Saturday morning:

(Above the site and crane, next two below the frame.)








(Above the hammer beams in three bents. Below timber framers climb the staging.)





(Above a girt with two braces is flown in by crane.)

The finished frame photos haven't been posted on the timber framers guild site, yet.
But here is a link to the site where they will be:

 That's a New England thing, they're not keen on log homes,but they sure love their timber frames!
I thought Michigan would be log home country??

Before the raising got going this man walked through the site and looked at everything:



We were told who he was, but I don't believe it.

Captain:
I placed a notice in this section, and in the Places and events section about this frame raising.
You'll need to keep an eye on both or one or other.
It's be a while before they enclose it, if you drove up this weekend or coming week you probably could see it standing, complete.
