The Blue Ox Timber Frames crew has been very busy this summer, both in the shop and on the road. Recently, the Blue Ox crew traveled to Danbury, Wisconsin, to raise a Douglas Fir timber frame cabin. This cabin has many small touches that give it a lot of character.
Despite a foot of rain on the first night, the crew was able to stay on schedule.
This Douglas Fir bent has many small decorative touches that add up to a very distinct piece. The double-king posts and arched struts within the truss are complemented by the arched knee braces in the posts.
After the bents were installed, the crew put the ridge beam in place.
The ceiling joists have a planed inset to add depth and character.
The ceiling joist ends have decorative cuts.
