This 30' x 40' cape frame was one of Rulo Timberworks first projects. The timber frame is Eastern White Pine with Red Oak pegs. This simple structure is one of my favorite designs. We had a lot of fun cutting this frame because we were able to use some joinery that was not utilized in the many shops that I had worked in. It has the English tying joint, gun stocked posts, full length eave plates with wedged stopped splayed scarf joints, summer beams, eaves dropper joists and many through tenons. This frame also happened to be for a friend, so I get to see it often. I love watching it age – shrinking, checking, yellowing. It is sort of the model home for us and can be viewed most anytime. Come check it out.
