Hand-Hewn House Ell Frame

We were hired to recreate the hand-hewn timber frame from an historic farmhouse in Sudbury, VT that was lost to fire. Working with the client and architect, we designed a frame that very closely mimicked the original, incorporating a few features (like loft floor framing) to make the space fit the client's needs. We recreated fir log-rafters and a pentagonal ridge beam to match the old frame, and we used broad-axes to hand-hew all visible surfaces of the timbers in the frame.
