IMG_2791 Until I went on-site to take a few photos of a Collin Beggs design/build project, I had no idea what a timber frame raising looked like. Apparently, at least in this case, it looks like a roof being lowered onto 12 interlocking joints using a crane and a crew of nine men. Some last-minute chisel touch ups were needed. Afterwards, as tradition dictates, the youngest member of the crew christened the structure with a whetting bough (not to be confused with a wedding bow, which is what I first thought they were saying).
