RAISING YOUR TIMBER FRAME
The most exciting day in the life of your timber frame is raising day! You have anticipated this day for months, possibly years. You have imagined what those drawings were going to look like in real life and that day has arrived. Our crew will begin by assembling the bents on your deck and peg them together. Connecting timbers will be arranged in order of installation. When all is in readiness the crane operator will arrive on site and up she goes! Each bent is raised and secured, one bent to the next. All floor and roof members are flown in and pegged until the timber frame structure is complete. A straightforward timber frame composed of four bents and three bays typically takes one-to-two days to assemble and one day to raise. A fourth day may be required to finish peg the frame. At this time, your contractor may take over and complete the project.
“I reached out to several timber frame companies to build a pavilion in memory of my late wife. Homestead was the most responsive by far and I went with them. It turned out to be a great decision. They designed and built the perfect pavilion and met every one of their commitments on schedule. The pavilion is now raised and nearing final completion and I couldn’t be happier.”
