I was brought in as lead builder to guide the team through the process of jointing, pegging and raising the round wood timber frame.
Starting with the basics of building the framing beds and organising the poles. Followed by teaching a team of six people the butterpat joint which is one of the main joints in round wood framing.
The design used four frames each consisting of two rafters and a tie beam. These were installed on a dry stone wall on one side and a hand hewn wall plate supported by four jowl posts on the other.
