The timber frame began to take shape.
Notice again the wide hog-trough corners and angle bracing going down to the floor. I’ve yet to find a timber frame book that illustrates this method of vintage framing commonly found here in Virginia.
I reconfigured the old frame, bringing part of the second floor down to create more of a first floor and less of a second floor. A wood working shop has little need of an upper level. And should this shop ever be finished off into a finished home the new owners would also appreciate more first floor square footage.
