Placing the Engineered Wood Glulam Roof Ridge Beam

Project: Dream Garage and Boat Storage, Episode 5, Part 1

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.
