The timber frame boathouse featured in this post is completely custom, and has some really cool details. Do you see those scrolled rafter tails? I bet Kellin was involved. They give the frame a touch of elegance.
Here’s another shot, stepping back, so you can appreciate the overall design.The roof line is particularly interesting.
The frame was constructed using douglas fir timbers that were traditionally joined with 1″ oak pegs cut flush.
It is located in Quebec. Helloooooo snow load, and don’t forget the 2 boat lifts — yikes! It was an engineering challenge, but our engineer, Jesse, can handle a challenge. Challenges keep the work exciting for all of us.
