Timber Frame Joinery
This is a circa 1790s barn that was dismantled and stored for years and is now being resurrected. While we did not re-assemble the structure, we were called on to do the critical joinery work of repairing all posts and replacing one. The joinery repairs consisted of scarfing an addition to all posts. Our work served 2 purposes: 1 to remove rot; 2 to raise the first floor 2 feet for the new owners purposes. Note the rotation of the scarf joints to manage and reduce shear and moment forces on the posts. We are happy knowing our work has given this old barn new life. Note the long and wide boards we supplied for the barn sheathing. Some boards are 20 inches wide and 24 feet long.
