Timberframe near Pugwash on the Northumberland Strait

Our client, Burt Powell, made a video of the construction and raising of his home. Enjoy. More photos below.

See the little triangle with the peg in it?

It’s the little piece of the principal rafter, left over after the valley mortise. The peg holds it in place during shipping. If it were not there, there would be a hole visible below, and that’s not the Arlington way.
