Rear Wall Complete – the green oak barn

Monday 7/12/20

The framing yard

Today the last two braces went into the rear wall.

My handiwork is checked over by the boss. It passed.

We took everything to pieces but the light went quickly so before putting the finished bits away we decided we should put up the lights.

These made a huge difference and will mean we can carry on beyond 4pm each day if we want to. We then put the finished timber away. The pile of jointed timber is now looking satisfyingly big. It feels like we are making real progress.

Ben won’t be around tomorrow so he helped me move the timber in for the wall plate of the front wall.

My job is to mark these up and join them with a scarf joint.

Let’s see how far I get tomorrow.

Onwards and upwards.
