Post on top of post/beam joint
« on: April 02, 2017, 06:29:14 PM »
How would a post join to a post/beam joint underneatth it? I am interested in doing a hybrid timber balloon type framing method and only build up one floor at a time so the posts and beams do not weigh to much.

Are there any recommended books on this sort of thing? It seems like how some old industrial buildings are built.

I can only guess what you have in mind, drawings really help.  What you are describing, without necessary detail, is a building constructed story upon story, that would be some type of platform framing not balloon framing, where exterior walls are framed up sill to eaves with continuous studs.  The general building type, I guess you are aiming for was called a full frame.  Illustrations should be in old carpentry texts.

You're right, platform frame was the term I was looking for, not balloon. I am working on a sketchup that I will upload tomorrow.

This is more mill type construction but has some details;

The index for their pubs is here;
