Raising the timber frame great room with principal rafters & common purlins

Timber Frame Great Room Raising

Our crew raised this timber frame great room for a residence in Methuen, MA. You can see how we are able to integrate the timber frame portion with the rest of the home, which is conventionally framed. The species is Douglas Fir.

The frame features a principal rafter & common purlin roof, authentic mortise & tenon joinery with hardwood oak pegs, and will have tongue & groove roof decking and SIP panels. We’ll also be raising a timber frame kitchen ceiling, timber frame front portico, and adding timber frame gable accents.
