Second Floor taking shape
  • Decking is both architectural and protection for the log work during construction. Materials are stored here during the second floor progress.
  • Second floor walls installation starts with Keith, the crew foreman, directing the crane with the fire place wall for the great room. Notches are pre-cut in the top of the wall to hold the timber frame purloins.
  • Steel beams, clad in Douglas Fir, provide the engineering to span further than with traditional wood beams.
  • Sturdy timber frame connections by KRT.
  • The garage well under way.
  • Seismic hold-down, 1″ threaded rod embedded 12″ into the concrete and epoxied, fastened with 30 – 1/4″ X 2.5″ SDS screws. There are 22 on the main floor – this home is staying put!
