Front Wall Complete – green oak barn

Saturday 2/1/21

I finished the front wall this morning. A bit of a milestone. I used the technique described here to measure up and fit the last post and brace to the wall plate.

Front left brace - 1

Front left brace - 2

Front left brace - 4

Ben came around in the afternoon and we moved the elements of the front wall to the ‘finished pile’ and laid out the north end wall plate and the two short posts ready for tomorrow. This is the cross frame that will sit on the wall in the background of this picture.

Although progress is not fast, the pile of finished timber is looking pretty impressive.

We are getting there.
