This Cape and attached Ell are new frames cut from antique timber.  The 29'x36' Cape incorporates a classic English Tying Joint, continuous plates, and a major rafter/minor purlin roof system.  The Kitchen ell is 18'x24'.  Note how the interior tie beams of the Kitchen ell extend through the plate to create the entry way.  Timbers used in these frames are hewn Pine, Spruce, and Hemlock salvaged from several barns that were too far gone to be candidates for re-assembly.  (parts barns that were otherwise going to be demolished).
