Summer 2016 Timber Tidbits

posted in: Newsletters | 0

We had a busy winter and spring, and have lots of projects going on right now. The shop is full of sawdust and stacks of cut timbers, and along with frames we're building cabinets and furniture.

Take a look at what we've been up to!

The MoreSun Team

Indiana Barn Raising

In January we traveled to Indiana for a barn raising. And yes, it snowed...

Ben, Jeremy, Ethan and Daniel were troopers! The client put up a tent complete with a wood stove for thawing out during lunch and breaks.

The huge white oak timber frame included three cupolas and T&G on the ceiling.

Fellowship Bible Church

In spring we cut and raised two big entry porches and a breezeway for a church in Roswell, Georgia. This massive truss created a 44-foot clear span and we used two forklifts to move it out of the shop to load it on the truck.

Timber Framed Carport

The snowy Indiana raising in January was balanced by a June heat-wave raising in Dunwoody, Georgia.

Just ask Jeremy, Daniel and Joe up there on top installing T&G in the sun.

The cypress timber framed carport was added next to the home's garage for additional covered parking.

The design complemented a pergola we built several years earlier in front of the garage.

Outdoor Kitchen

We built a white oak pavilion for a client in Little Switzerland, North Carolina last year. We're so happy to be working for them again!

We closed in one wall with cypress and will soon be installing wormy chestnut cabinets built with wood salvaged from the original homestead. Appliances will finish up this incredible outdoor kitchen.

Also in the works here are a timber framed garden shed, new porch posts, railings and stairs on the house.

Meet our summer intern Joe Najar

Joe came to us from the American College of the Building Arts in Charleston, where he'll be starting his second year in the Timber Framing program this fall.

Originally from Nashville, Joe was cooking in restaurants and working on farms when he decided to change his career path. A high school friend attended ACBA and sparked Joe's interest in timber framing.

Joe is eager to learn and hard working - we're thrilled to have him. He is our 6th intern from the ACBA and it's exciting to be a part of sustaining the craft of timber framing!
