We recently erected a timber frame on a beautiful New Hampshire lake for a home completed by Dugas Builders, LLC of Brookfield, NH, the GC on the project.
The shop drawings clearly show what we are going to build:

When we got on site everything was prepped and ready for us–good job Jeff and crew! Our raising crew having a meeting on site:
I love how we were able to solve one of the engineering issues for the loads by incorporating a steel I-beam into our timber frame. That’s our design and engineering team–creative solutions!

Timber frame is finished!
Dugas Builders took it from here, with the sheathing, roofing, siding, finish carpentry, etc. Here’s a picture of the sheathing:

Here are a couple of nice pictures of the interior.
Great job all around. It was a pleasure to collaborate on this job with Dugas Builders. Everything really turned out well.

Awesome finished pictures Mike, love it!!
Love that kitchen! It looks so warm and inviting. Would be a great house in the winter too.
Not so much a comment as a question. Solid wood posts and beams vs laminated post and beams?
We have a blog post that goes into the differences between Solid Beams vs Laminated. https://www.vermonttimberworks.com/blog/glulam-vs-solid-beams-which-is-best-for-your-project/
Hope that helps.
