Timber Frame Fishing Lodge Part 7 – Day 9 Review

Oh, so close – we only have nine jack purlins to drop in (the smallest, trickiest pieces), and we’ll be finished with the timber framing!  We had just about everything for weather; we started with a rainbow (I missed the chance to photo it), then driving rain and dark and menacing clouds, followed by bright sunshine mixed with billowy white clouds.

We could have had all the timber purlins in place, but we spent some time packaging up some of our tools, in preparation of the trip home.  We have 18 bags and bins of tools, equipment and personal items to lug home, and our first flight (float plane) only has so much lifting capacity – we would be well overweight if we tried to send it all at once!

We’ll wrap things up tomorrow with the timber frame, and then jump over to help the local crew install the 2×6 hemlock decking.  We’re working on our flight schedule, so stay tuned to find out when we head home.

In the meantime, here are some progress shots.
