The old timber frame began to rise again!
We will soon lay brick for the chimney and to add a finishing touch to the poured concrete basement.
Brick is a great material, one that I don’t use very often. When I do I either choose recycled brick from old homes, or, as on this home, new hand-thrown brick. And, I like to go with a Flemish Bond pattern when laying.
Notice those wide corner posts… once again we experience the Virginia “hogtrough” post… and those corner braces which go to the floor, not the ceiling.
Once the frame is complete we will cover it in stress skin panels… but for now, if you look inside, we are applying painted wood paneling to create the entrance hallway. (I’ll pop up a photo of that finished space later this morning)
