Timber Frame House Photo Update: The Floor Platform & More
The latest step: installing reclaimed subflooring material
The major framing of the timber frame house floor platform is complete! All of the sill beams and floor joists are firmly in place, and now we are at the exciting stage of installing our reclaimed tongue and groove subflooring.
Here’s a photo update of how things are shaping up at the work site.

The 2x6 insulation joists for holding in blown cellulose are installed at the bottom of the sill beam -- metal roofing will later be attached
3x10 floor joists completely installed... that was a lot of sawing!
