I guess I should have put this here.  Working on a barn for a shop and critter needs right now, thought some folks on Permies would enjoy it.

I was just telling someone on here today in a private message that in another lifetime perhaps, I would have a timber frame barn. I would love to have one as we spend so much time in our barns. But I just don't see it ever happening, so I'll just be jealous of yours!

Nice job, and nice shout out to the people of Forestry Forum; a great bunch of people that will forget more about logging then I ever will remember.

Thanks.  They are a good group over there, I've never done this before so they've been a huge help.

Nice job.   Especially since this is your first frame.

This helps confirm what I've thought for a long time, that just about anyone with basic building skills can build a timber-frame.   Just approach it with patience and intelligence.   And, I suppose, common sense.   Build it on your own schedule and you will have something you can be proud of for many years.  

I look forward to more updates.

It's been awhile since I updated this thread so here is what's been going on with the barn.  This past weekend I was playing logger harvesting timbers for the barn.  There are also some layout discussions I will post that were requested by some folks on YouTube.
