Slowly but surely I'm making way towards starting my roundwood timber frame. With the rubble trench filled, I've already harvested the trees over a month ago and I'm almost done debarking them, and pulling them the last 70 meters to the construction site. I decided I will build my home's frame on large, maybe 1 meter long boulders, which I have yet to order from the quarry. The boulders complicate how I envision the order that things should occur in. Here's how I envision the steps:
Assemble the logs so they don't get in the way of the truck bringing in the bouldersOrder the boulders from the quarryInstall the boulders in their final placesMake the boulder surfaces for each corner levelBuild the framebedBuild the crucks frames
- Where do I build the framebed in correllation to the house? My understanding is to build the framebed where the house will sit.
- If I build the FB on the house site, should I install the boulders in their final positions, and build the frame bed on top of the boulders?
- If so, it would be less work to lift the crucks legs onto the final resting positions, however, once I'd construct the first crucks frame, I'd have to move it off the framebed to make room to build the second and final crucks frame, might I run out of space?
- Am I overcomplicating this?
