I just finished a barn design plan for a fellow in RI.
It's 36' x 48' and had a 12' lean-to on the north side.
The south side will have solar panels on the roof.

Looks very cool Jim. A lotta timber. Funny, I was recently driving and wondering how to incorporate a ship's prow into a timber frame.

Well my build (14'X18' bunkie) is my very first and it has been a real learning experience. Started the timber work in mid February in my garage with the timbers that would fit, and the longer pieces had to wait for the warmer weather in the Spring so that I could work on them with the garage door open.
All in all, I am pretty satisfied with the results and had only one dutchman's patch to fix. Other than that, fit was perfect. Test fit in my driveway by myself because nobody around to lend a hand. 
I'm currently trying to enclose it before the inclement weather starts for the Fall and eventually into Winter. Lots of work when you're doing it all alone. Oh well...

Horseshoe for playing horseshoes, not real ones. I'll either add a chunk of steel to the back of the treadle, or a bungee cord to the top of the arm. Chunk of steel would be less conspicuous.

Pegs. From the building site, back in to the frame.

We've been doing some post repairs, this is the second shortening of them in the past 30 years or so. I'm no stone mason but poured a footing to act as a curb to keep water out from under the building then a little stonework to get up out of the splash better and blend better than raw concrete. For this kind of work I make a back form, this one is making a 16" thick wall, then lay a stone face with mortar and fill to the inside form with concrete bag mix  We shortened about 18" this time.



This is the top of the chunk we removed. The mill was built in 1875, the ~10x10 white oak post was tight ringed, no sapwood and about 210 rings showing. The white trails are powderpost beetles. The owners went for more solubor yesterday and are doing it up.


 



That round post I'm using for a temporary jack post is a chunk of chestnut that was floating around under there.
