Hey y'all! Here is that very, overdue post that I promised on the progress
of our house. So prepare yourselves for a LOT of pictures. :-)
Very first cut!!!! So exciting!!!
We are timber-framing the kitchen and porches of our house. However, the
main section will be a square beam, dovetail, log structure with chinking.
Timber-framing is an old traditional way of framing houses
without nails or hardware, but rather using large beams, joinery, and wooden pegs.
We were so thankful to have had all of the Wright
family's help for a couple of work days!
The tedious process of chiseling took a long time, but
went so much faster with all of our extra help!
Gavin helping us get lunch ready. He was such a big helper and
worked hard most of the day with the rest of us (besides a
few snacks and naptimes :-) ).
Now the kitchen floor is framed out and actually has decking down on it now.
It is so exciting to finally see this all coming together!
