Projects - Black Dog Valley System

A bastard valley system for Black Dog Timberworks. Compound joinery is one of those things that can make any timber framer a little nervous. Just a little off with the calculations can really make a raising go bad. Check your math, check your layout, double check, triple check and then check it again. This is a 9:12 pitch dormer in a 12:12 pitch main roof done up in Hemlock. Unfortunately, bad weather was coming, so the general contractor had tarps on this frame before we even had our tools away. So much for photo opps.
