Timbers are up!  This has been an amazing week here at the homestead.  Todd, Curtis, Brian, and Jared assembled the timber frames flat on the floor of the great room, then a crane was on site to lift and set them in place.  While the crane was doing the lifting, Todd and his crew were running up and down ladders, maneuvering a telehandler with a platform all around the house to be in position to guide the timbers in place.  It reminded me of carrier flight operations in such that it looked chaotic and dangerous, and it was!  On the flight deck of a carrier, people are running all over the place with purpose, each one has assigned duty and everyone is directed by the Air Boss using a loud speaker.  If you’re not in the place you should be, the Boss will definitely let you know!  Here, Todd is the Air Boss.
