steel, meet wood…at oblique angles

Monday, December 10th, 2012 by

So this photo deserves its own single post.  I took this shot just to show how very much is going on in our framing; you see two steel girders here, meeting at the low point of our cantilevered shed roof.  There’s also metal holding the multiple layers of wood framing when the dropped roof continues out onto the deck (where one wall is tapered) and, in the lower right, the corner of a window.

No, we couldn’t do your basic square-shapes-right-angles house.  In the first place, neither of us does anything in a standard way; I mean, an AARP-card-carrying grad student?  A NASCAR-loving Mensa-qualified technogeek woodworker?  You see what I mean.  We’re not normal.  So our house isn’t going to be one of your basic boxes.

And you won’t see this stuff in a couple weeks, when the drywall goes in, so I thought I’d share this now.
