On April 3, Rich Wilhemsson and his friend Tarek raised the 3 large 6×8 beams for the roof. First, Rich had to cut and level the 6×6 beams before putting on the roof beams. Two of these 6×8 beams were milled by Jason Vincent in 2013 (over 4 year ago). The third beam was recently milled by Dave Merchant. I will contact him next year to mill the wood for the cabinets. The beams were secured with a very large bolt through the wood. I did not want any metal brackets.
Next month, the 2×6 roof rafters will be added by Rich so the roof can be finished over the summer.
