Main Cabin Started

Temporary posts are to hold up the, what will be a post-less veranda.

These beams are to be half lapped to the upright frames. Intermediate beams will be made after gluing up this framework and the cabin beam shelf is inserted and glued up. 

Laminated cabin beam detail - 75 x 40mm

Cabin Sheer

With the help of a bit of designer input we came up with this. Thanks Gary. I added a straight edge so that I can view the result better.

Main Cabin

Just thinking. Playing around with some rough pine to see what the cabin will look like.
7 degrees looks good  for the cabin sides as per plan.
