Timber framing is being erected on a large ranch project west of Dallas.
All of the wood used is new Doug fir that has been distressed to provide a more rustic look. The pieces of timber were shipped to the jobsite prior to erection for the painter from Napa Valley to paint and finish.
The first few weeks of erection were spent putting entire wall sections together on the ground like Lincoln Logs. As soon as a few wall sections were assembled, the crew from Texas Timber Frames out of the San Antonio area stood the entire wall up with a mobile crane. It’s quite an impressive process with beautiful results.
