Zoomers are high-resolution pictures that we present full size so that you can see details up close. Any photo with a red border in our gallery is a zoomer. Click on it, and a new window will open with the high-res picture. In some browsers, you may need to click on the picture again, or on an enlarge-picture icon that appears on the bottom right-hand corner. Once in the high-res version, you can zoom around using your scrollbars. Close the window to return here.

Zoomers from the McQuarrie timber frame in South Rawdon, NS
Left: First bent being lifted up.
Right: Here we are tying the last bent to connecting girts, top plates, and braces.
In the zoomer, you can see a spike in a brace peg hole, which allows us to make adjustments without letting the brace fall out.
