We had a great raising on Thursday. We had a crane come out. It was a valuable learning experience and a victorious day for Dillon, Brian and I. The joinery turned out tight and we are very proud.

We concluded that dry fitting everything would've made the raising smoother. We pre-assembled the bents of course for the crane to raise but did not assemble the girts. That caused us to spend a good amount of time trimming up the European braces. We work together really well so we were undoubtedly able to raise it successfully with all the obstacles that day. You would be proud of us. It looks beautiful. All the wood (Doug fir) for the timber frame was cut on site.
