Courtyard Frame

 

This is a very high single storey frame, designed to maximise the feeling of volume in the restricted space available. The following picture is a CAD interpretation of the extent of the framing.

The existing cowshed style barn is to be converted to residential use, linking the three bedroom spaces via an oak framed kitchen link.

Due to the awkward access, this frame had to be ‘hand raised’ with the assistance of some simple lifting gear…

The main part, containing two bedrooms, nearly finished. Thanks Matt P for your enthusiasm and help with the raising.

King post trusses with braced ridge purlin.

Finished raising from the kitchen link perspective. The general carpenters have already got cracking on filling in the panels and getting the roof on whilst the weather is good! We raised it in March, they are planning to move in by August! 🙂
