Blue Ox Timber Frames recently raised an Eastern White Pine (EWP) cabin on a northern Minnesota lake. The crew installed the basement timbers during the first week, and then raised the timber frame the following week.
The basement timbers are exposed and provide support for the timber frame above. You can see the Enercept structural insulated panels (SIPs) in the exterior walls.
Once all the basement timbers were set, the floor was installed and we were able to raise the timber frame.
After the timbers were raised, the tongue and groove ceiling was installed.
The Eastern White Pine timbers are a natural complement to the surrounding lake and woods. We hope the homeowners enjoy their new cabin.
