REAL MEN STICK-FRAME!!
Nah. real men don't frame with sticks they frame with timbers. :icon_wink:
Here's a little of whit I did today. the cool thing was it all fit!
Taking of shavings with a 120+ yer year old slick. This beam was harvested early last year at my mother in laws property.
Taking her out to her new home.
Beam me up Scotty!
Gettting there .... I never did take a pic once I got it up. To my suprise, everything went together within 1 1/16" inch tolerance.
Most stick framers may not believe that, because working within a 1/4" is "close enough" for most.
With timber frming it had better be spot on!
Actually, this project is an amalgamation of stick framing, timber framing, SIPs, and ICFs. Out pantry double as the concrete safe room. So my house building is like my tool buying .... whatever works best for the application.
Edit: None of these captions went where they were told!
