Raising Gable Ends and Cutting Rafters
Project: Ranch Expansion, Episode 3, Part 3
Bob reviews the process of framing the new first floor layout, then takes a tour of another project in the works: the U.S.S. Constitution, in drydock for repairs in Boston Harbor. Returning to Wayland, contractor Bob Ryley explains how the rafters are cut for the new roof.
Bob takes on the expansion of a 35 year-old ranch house in Wayland, MA. With an eye on the budget, projects include European kitchen cabinets, a state-of-the-art closet system for the master bedroom, custom built-in bookshelves, an eye-catching fan detail on the front façade, and a private deck off the master bedroom.
