Expert Timber Framing

One of the most dangerous aspects of building is framing the roof. We asked for help from Jason of All Around Construction. He is an expert at framing heavy timber structures the old fashioned way. But our home is framed with modern engineered lumber. These joists and beams are made of wood chips pressed and glued together to form lumber that is stronger, more stable, and yet from fewer trees than standard lumber. You might say that Jason was over qualified for our project. I think that was good. You should have seen him crawling across the ridge beam like an iron worker.

Jason coordinated the crane for us, working with the crane operator to get our ridge beams up. We found him to be very knowledgeable and a joy to work with. He brought along his dog, Sioux (not a boy named Sue).
