Adding an entrance gate to this Alabama ranch served several purposes.
It allows the owner to control access, encloses the property and makes a strong statement.
The Southern Yellow Pine ranch entrance timber frame gate structure was created with large posts and a top beam.
The knee braces are cut from substantial timbers and the posts are 24 feet high.
We used chainsaws for most of the cutting on these massive timbers.
(Note: currently 12x12 timbers are the largest we can reliably source.)

It's always nice to see the finished project in use!
