This was an old barn turned into quite a nice home. Unfortunately, This side roof was left primarily exposed to the elements. We were engaged to replace the posts that were suffering from profound deterioration. That, in and of itself is a neat bit of carpentry, fun, old school cutin’ –n- fittin’.
The rafters were fully engaged with the masonry wall and, in fact, protruded into the two story great room on the inside. In order to replace the posts we had to carefully support the beams so as to not leaver the bearing wall out from under the main roof. That would have been…..bad. See more photos here.
