This house has a giant footprint of over 10K square feet. As a result, everything from the timbers to the ceilings are big. Watch as Bert Sarkkinen joins a framing crew to build the post and beam construction side of things. From strong, curved trusses to the beams and posts, everything is up-sized. Framing a timber home requires some heavy lifting.
You’ll see that the crew utilizes a heavy forklift with wheels to lift the heavy beams. They use a crane to lift the posts in the back of the home up to the stone posts. You’ll watch as holes are drilled in the beams to fit the timber package accurately. If you’re interested in Hybrid Timber Framing, you’ll find all sorts of content on our Youtube channel,
