Roof framing with whole trees

Seems like the roof is framed out of whole trees! Tricky but going nicely.

Rigged a nice parbuckle to bring the perlin logs into position for scribing.

A little work with the chainsaw and chisel and the perlins are seated into the top chord of the truss. For now I have bolted them in place with threaded ready rod because the trusses will be taken apart several times during the construction of the cabin. They will be pinned with 7/8" oak pegs after the cabin has been sold and re-assembled for the final time on site.

Should be an interesting week ahead putting on the ridge perlin and then hewing them flat for the roof boards.

  1. Looks like a fun project. It's not often I get to work with wood in the round.
