Woodshed Build Underway

The base beams of the woodshed are laid.   Using a chainsaw to carve up 10" by 10" white pine beams, these timbers are tied in to concrete posts with custom metal plates that unify the structure.  

the base plates have holes for thru-bolts that tie the wood timbers permanently to the concrete piers.these heavy 10 by 10 white pine beams can be managed by a single sturdy person.  They are designed so that each one slides down the anchored rod over the previously laid beam.  The first and last beams are distinct in that they account for the order of placement.  The final beam overlaps both the pentultimate and first beam.In this view from the woodpile, we can see that we are almost finished laying the beams!
