Yeah, a little busy.  I probably could have gone with shorter braces but was worried about the leverage it provides when too short.  On the plus side, it proved to be a very stiff frame in the engineer's dynamic modeling software used to evaluate wind and earthquake tests.  I have to have seismic stability, usually accomplished with plywood shear walls.  I don't have ANY plywood in my build! 8)

The bracing arrangement makes this frame look solidly low German. Just put some bricks between those timbers, and it would fit right in in Northern Germany!
