After working all the way until nightfall yesterday and starting again before dawn this morning, the crew has raised the Saratoga Horse Barn Timber Frame! It was a monumental feat but they were up to the challenge. The post and beam barn measures in at 36' x 48' and is located in Sutton, MA.
Since every piece was precut to exact precision, this was like a big-kids version of a childhood jigsaw puzzle. 506 pieces, age 30-45, crane recommended is what the box would have said. The crew had 364 oak pegs to connect the 506 hemlock timbers, and they did so in record time: 9 hours. Plus, they did it all with smiles on their faces. Working for the Brand is hard work, but rewarding, especially after seeing the completed timber frame standing tall and enjoying a well-deserved coffee break! Next, the crew will work on roofing & siding.
