We hired Matt to build us the log home we'd always been dreaming of. The end result is more stunning than we could have imagined. A true work of art.

Start planning for your timber trusses in the great room before you start building. Yes, I do have to say that. :)

My intern Peter from Bavaria working through the heat, seemingly for the fun of it. :) After all, how often do you get to jump on a 50" diameter Black walnut ?

Never a dull moment! #reclaimed , #timberframe #muskokaroom on Lake of Bays. We started to erect this simple little frame on Wednesday at 3pm thinking , we would be out of here by 7. Then the hydraulic pump in the boom truck lost its mojo at 5... more than that, it was a complete halt! boom stuck in the air, luckily we had just disconnected, and I guess luckily it wasn't the following day when there was supposed to be man in a basket off that ball. A few hours later at 7:30 pm, we managed to get another crane squeezed in between the boom truck and the rock cut, to complete our last 3 lifts.

More #reclaimed #ontariowood from a Barn near Stayner On. primarily all White Ash, but also some Beech. Re creating a space with these timbers ,you cant help but think of the men that logged them, hewed them, and layed out their notches with a scratch awl, 120 years ago all these men that would have worked on these timbers are long gone now, but the wood they worked on,... lives on. What a beautiful thought.
