Pit Sawn Timbers

Recommended Posts

Had a fun job the other day... built in 1645...   Pit-sawn timbers.....     You could see where the 'team' were taking breaks and such....

I can't share the photos unfortunately.. it's a sensitive situation.     It had one of the most beautifully-trimmed/carved summer-beams I've ever seen... just perfect (in the front-right 'living' room).  Gunstock corner posts exposed...     

I've done a bunch of these thru the years.. this one was the easiest but it too was complex in regards to the multiple two-pipe-steam heat systems, numbers of panels and such. It had a ton of excellent heart-wood for window casings/sills and such...    

The main fireplace was huge and I was able to 'walk into it' to inspect it.. that big..
