i checked this out on your project list before and being in the construction industry i was pretty impressed my friend.sadly at least in so cal most of the so called framers dont really learn the trade anymore,its all piece workers knocking out cookie cutter tract homes.most wouldn’t have a clue how to even start something like that.nice work buddy cant wait to see pics of these builds.

It’s definitely The REAL THING! No need for the PM Conversation Pottz. ..lol..

In those days we used PET (Precision End Trimmed Studs} for the Framing and Corner Studs & Partition Studs. 3 pieces for each and a second Top Rail to tie the Interior Partitions to the Outside Wall Framing. Nobody does that anymore.

I can’t post this as a “Project” so I guess this is as good a place as any. Might be a while though. I have a couple of Health Problems that are Keeping me Down pretty good and NO Idea how long it will go on.

Rick do you have any pics of it totally complete? Kind of reminds me of a big covered bridge. Real craftsmanship there

No totally Finished Pics of this one as the Owner wanted to do the Full Exterior Shingling Himself.

This is however a Full Back View Picture as it was getting Fully Closed In. It’s built on SOLID Granite and the footings for the Piers were somewhat Complex. I’ll add a picture of those 2.. Both Foundations were put in P;ace the Fall before the Summer we did them.

That’s it for now!

I don’t understand the issue, you had a generator. If you had to generate the electricity by biking then that would be interesting. ;)

Quite the build there. I don’t think I’ve seen too many Mansard roofs in the past hundred years. Where did you build this thing?

.- John Smith

We bought a new Honda Generator and a new Webster Compressor. Yes. They survived quite nicely and did so for many Years after that. Auto Nailers were reasonably new at that time. I think these ones were “Paslode”. Without them, NOT a Prayer this would have gotten done!

- lumbering_on

What issue? We had a Generator and a Compressor, as explained above. The Generator provided the Electricity on it’s own for some tools and also powered up the Compressor for the Compressed Air for our Air Power Tools.

What does “Biking” mean. They were built about 70 or 80 Miles S.W. Of Ottawa.

Biking to turn a generator with pedal power. :)

It’s impressive that two of you could do this in just one summer in the bush. It took them 8 months to finish building my house a few years back, and that was with the foundation, and most of the framing completed.

Thank You Kindly lumberking! We went up as early as we could. but the Blackflies Ate us alive! So we had to give it another 2 weeks before we went back up. Even then after 7:00 PM the Mosquitos were bad enough! DEET was the order of the day and I do NOT like using that stuff!

buddy forget about the views and look at the friends,i give up on the views because there all people that dont care enough to say something,or care who you are.its like the rocker i just made very few hits,but look at my assembly table,many really dont know or care about real wood working here.that rocker took more time and skill than than that table by 10 times or more.my friend and those that are your real friends care when you take the time and share what means something to you,please dont ever give up this passion my friend.its why im here-peace.

POTTZ: Thank you for this My Friend…... “my friend and those that are your real friends care when you take the time and share what means something to you,please don’t ever give up this passion my friend.its why im here-peace.”

it just seems to me that other people think and care more of themselves then they do of other people.

I’ve noticed for a long while now a LARGE difference between the Number of Views and the Number of Comments particularly in the “Projects” Section. I post there a lot and view the projects that I Like. I also ALWAYS leave an encouraging Comment if I’ve Viewed it.

I don’t have 10,357 Post by saying nothing to anybody. The Vast Majority of those are Compliments to another Member!

I’ve also noticed YOU on there quite a bit doing the same thing. Good For You! (its why im here-)

After all …. Why do people post in there or anywhere else? To GET AN ANSWER or a COMPLIMENT.

Isn’t that what this Site is all about? Helping/Complimenting each other?

I’m almost Sorry to say that this is the way OUR Society is these days. Me! Me! Me! NUFF SAID, RANT OVER!

Have A Nice Day My Friend.

I don’t comment on many projects because almost all of the projects I have seen on this site are done well. This site seems to be cliquey also

Trying to get this over into BLOGS but it doesn’t want to work unless I Re-Post every single picture.

I won’t be doing that. (IT finally Did It ON It’s OWN ) Thank YOU for your Patience.

EDIT: Most of it is now over in BLOGS. How I did that is Beyond My Comprehension!
