Post-and-beam framing continues on the barn project: carpenter Bob Ryley puts new decking on the loft area; the ridge beam and rafters go up; and a specialist in 17th-century joinery comes from nearby Plimoth Plantation to offer a look at how the Pilgrims framed their houses. Bob takes a trip to Veneta, OR to tour the Willamette plant, where the engineered lumber used in the barn framing is manufactured.

Bob introduces the new garage and boat storage project, and looks over the plans for the post-and-beam structure with contractor Bob Ryley and architect Paul Pacella (from Maine Post and Beam).<br> <br> In addition, Bob travels to nearby Oyster Harbors, Massachusetts for a tour of a local marina with America's Cup champion Bill Koch.<br> <br> Back on site, excavation for the foundation starts and building formwork for the footings begins.
The garage project gets a real high-tech foundation, as layers of termite proofing, crushed stone, vapor barrier, rigid insulation, and wire mesh go down before the concrete can be poured. Mechanical contractor Frank Iadarola is on-site to explain how the Heatway hydronic heating system is installed in the slab to create a constant source of gentle heat for optimum car storage. Last, Bob tours an antique post-and-beam windmill at Heritage Plantation in Sandwich, MA.
