Frame Raising

One of the most exciting parts of the project is when the frame is raised and you see your home take shape. We encourage all of our clients to be present at the raising.

Usually working from one end we will use a crane to swiftly raise the pieces in a particular order using the carpenter’s marks to ensure the timbers are installed correctly.

Since the joints have already been pre-drilled, it is then a case of securing the frame with the hand-made oak pegs. An averaged sized three bedroom house frame can be raised and the common rafters fixed within three days.
