Seems like you are back with a much better crew - love the timber frames.

You know that quality matters when this is your base.

Cheers, Brandon.

thanks for another sweet contribution Brandon-!

i'm consistently surprised at how "few" total posts this thread has had compared to how many i assume there must have been, prior to actually checking.

i regularly assume there must have been more total posts then there actually has been, due to the incredible number of high quality posts this thread receives.

if there is a long running thread with a higher quality to quantity ratio i don't know what it is...

so a big thanks to all of the contributors... [and especially to survival for getting the ball rolling almost four years ago]

Brandon, it is always a fun day when you have a crane onsite.

Looks a bit nippy though..

That is good , it keeps the OSHA guys in their office. :)

Looks like a great crew.

When men were men, and they could stand on a 6x12 beam 10 feet off the ground without ropes or nets.

And, let's get into the mountains again this spring!

Edit; No worries on the work thing bro. We just need to get back after it climbing or hiking. You're a great partner.

Bamboo, that looks awesome!

I am doing the finish on a house gutted by fire: trim, flooring, tile, stair rail, cabinets, & doors, plus running the electrical, plumbing, carpet, and granite subs. It's 1 1/4 hour drive each way straight down the Front Range, and I am working alone at a busy pace; I like the break from working in the shop.

Hope you don't have any leaks, Edge.

Talk about a rude awakening.

I got some clients in the middle of the night once.
Luckily, they thought it was funny.

Nice hat.

I was taking a few pics of my house to show some details to a client and took one of this custom climber's stair riser. Gotta find something to do with those old #1 rigid stem friends...

thanks edge--that heat in the bath slab and the radiant we installed under the deck has turned out to be very economical to run-
-the whole project took about 7 months to build --decks/main floor/full basement[insulated and finished]8000 sq ft
with a sprinkler system [real ugly!!]--sleeps 48

--everyone notices wood floors-its nice work! if your body can take it!

So I just got a call from an old client back in New Hampshire who told me about an article in the last issue of NH Homes.

http://www.nhhomemagazine.com/January-February-2014/A-perfect-and-functional-makeover-for-a-family/

I did the work on this room several years ago, and was personally responsible for 100% of the wood crafting from lumber selection, design, construction, finishing, and installation. This included flooring, wall panels, built-in cabinets & window seating, full bar, stair rail, and mouldings that I ran myself from knives I had custom designed and ordered. Even the mahogany columns on the bar were coopered and turned by me.

The last room referenced in the article, the family room, was finished the Fall before I left NH. It had raised wall panels, trim, a fireplace surrounded by built-in bookcases, a TV frame, and bench seating. Distressed birch with aniline dye & lacquer.
