    What i've been doing( update)

    Well as i took the camera to work today. Thought i'd show ya a few pics of what i've been working on for the last year and a half. First pic (if i get them in the right order) is the house it self.Pic of the barn is the front drive as you come down to the house. You really can't see them,but there is a nice pond before you get to the house. inbetween the barn and the house. Aslo a nice new pond in the back of the house.
    The pics of the beam work, with the brick and fireplace is, a indooor back porch.
    The pic of the kitchen(no cabs yet)Will have a large stanless steel stove-grill, installed in the area where the brick arch is. The kitchen also has a fireplace.
    The dinning area also has beams, and a fireplace.the master bedroom porch is the pics, where you see the brick masons are still working.Also has more of them big beams, i'm so tired of putting in.
    Well here's the pics and any and all comments welcome.
    Steve

    Stephen, that is just amazing! If I were a multi millionaire, I would live in something like that! I can't imagine dusting that monster years from now! Thanks so much for the pictures, that is awesome!!!

    Stephen, in the last picture there are two horizontal beams. They are cut at a diagonal but the cut allows them to fall to the floor, not lock them into the rafter. Those monsters have to have a little heft to them. You didn't just nail them in place. How are you holding them in midair where gravity, time, a few tremors don't wiggle them loose? Just being nosey.

    Just beautiful. I too am intrigued by the beam construction.
