MORESUN Timber Tidbits

Fall has taught us a thing or two about juggling. And patience....
Waiting for timber to arrive has had us moving between projects and rearranging schedules.

Thankfully, the backlog is clearing up
and now we can move on to full-on-crazy mode!

Here's a look at what's been happening ~

pool pavilion

This Atlanta cypress pool pavilion was a lesson in patience for the homeowner, the builder, and us (because cypress has been hard to source lately).

The curves in this porch truss adds visual interest and helps create a warm, inviting entry. On this project and the pool pavilion we were able to raise the timbers using our roustabout. The lift is a great option for us when we're working in tight locations with smaller frames or timbers.

A new project starts with a phone call or an email. Then come meetings and measuring and collaborating. A design is agreed on and drawn, engineering is completed, and timber is ordered. Cutting, chiseling, drilling, sanding, and fitting in the shop is complete. And this week the carport is being raised! See more carports here.
