A good new old fashionned barn

A busy few months since the end of summer, and several big projects now raised and finished. The Douglas Fir and Oak barn was raised by hand on a couple of glorious September days...cranes are great for the big heavy jobs, but its simple, safe and efficient to assemble a lighter frame like this using scaffold towers and manpower.

To a slightly fanatical timber framer, few things look finer than the simple detail of a nicely fitted jowl post/tie beam joint against a blue sky.
Think I should get out more...
