Beaming About Beams...
By:           Kim and Jeremy   |   June, 4th, 2015

Stage:     Design     |    Week 31

Story: Although it has taken much effort and a fair bit of distress for many people, we did manage to obtain some very beautiful beams for our new home. The beams are reclaimed yellow cedar and douglas fir and they are beautiful.

As the beams are so special, Graham decided that we should have them installed by the he called Roger of Coast Mountain Timber Frames to do the work. Roger is a true craftsman and to watch him work is a lesson in patience, attention to detail and skill. Here are a few pictures we took of Roger at work installing the beams....


The main ridge beam in the great room is about 22 ft long and 12" by 12". It is enormous. Roger installed it on his own with no help from anyone else!


And Jacko looks on....just making sure everyone is doing a good job!
