Raising the Barn: Day 5 – green oak barn

Thursday 22/4/21

I started today putting up the scaffolding and chamfering the elements of the trusses.

Then in the afternoon we put up the trusses and dropped in the ridge.

Again, things went really smoothly and I was very pleased with the result.

In between these activities, Ben fixed the dovetail joints of the righthand end wall plate.


Tomorrow we will finish pegging the frame and attempt to install the hip rafters. We anticipate that this will be a tricky operation.
