Timber Framing Guild

This timber frame with curved headers and yokes is for Shannon McIntyre's house. It's 169 1/2 long and 99"  in height from the bottom of the scribe stones to the top of the cross header. The timber frame was placed on the saw horses with the living room side up and the mud room side facing down.
