McQuarrie Timber Frame, South Rawdon, Nova Scotia

The photo at right shows the first bent being lifted up. This is a “zoomer”; you can click to view a high-resolution version and scroll around.

In the zoomer you can note the 2×10 temporary “strongbacks & clamps” The rafter/post connection is supported “just in case”. The bent will never encounter this type of load when it is in place.

Raising a timber frameAnother “zoomer” at left. 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.
