Lakefront Timber Frame Carport
Vancouver Island, British Columbia - 2020
A beautiful timber frame carport and workshop featuring traditional post and beam carpentry joints with select hidden threaded rods for additional capacity and ductility. The Vancouver Island sourced Douglas fir framing has been treated with borate to control insects and rot, thus the wood's grey appearance. Workshop was engaged to perform a general structural review and design of the heavy timber trusses and connections.
