Cooler weather is always welcome in the shop and on job sites.
The leaves are starting to turn colors and apple
season is in full swing here in the mountains.
The past few months have been full of interesting projects
and we're happy to show you what we've been up to!
The MoreSun Team
The Stealth Cabana You can see why this frame was quickly nicknamed the "Stealth" by the crew. The poolside cabana is a unique design and was finished with a T&G ceiling, a roof, plenty of seating and a bar. Working in the hot Atlanta sun right next to a gorgeous pool was a new form of torture for the raising crew, but they drank a lot of water and got through it!
Lake Rabun House We crafted glulam timber frame trusses to create a barrel vaulted ceiling in the lakefront home a while back and recently got pictures of the finished lived-in home. It's always so exciting to see the final results of our work! The trusses span from the carport through the interior and end at a half domed porch with a beautiful view of the lake.
Douglas Fir Porch This timber frame was raised at a new home being built on Lake Keowee in South Carolina.
The porch with fireplace, overlooking a golf course, will be screened in when completed.
A second timber frame structure will house the summer kitchen at the residence.
Barn Stairs & Braces A trip back up to Indiana (in much nicer weather than the first time around) was a September project. The barn was ready for timber framed stairs and live edge braces for the shed roof. The braces were crafted from Osage Orange, considered one of the most decay resistant types of wood found in North America. Our client, Brad, kept Ben, Ethan & Ethan fueled up with Starbucks, apple pie and lemon pound cake.
Open Air Pavilion A few miles away from the shop on a beautiful 100+ acre property we raised this Eastern White Pine pavilion. Tucked in the rhododendron next to a tumbling creek, rock work will complete the natural ambience. A pizza oven is in the plans as well!
