    I have a friend that's building a cabin near Augusta and is planning to incorporate exposed timber frame roof components into the construction. He is looking for either pine, cypress, or w red cedar. Ideally they would be 6 or 8" x 12" at lengths of 12,14' and 20' and a moisture content no greater than 12%. Framing will start by the end of September. I have shopped numerous suppliers in Alabama, Florida and Georgia but was hoping one of our GCMB posters might have knowledge of a small mom and pop source that might not advertise on the webz.

    Thanks

    Thats odd, hand lotion should prevent moisture intrusion.

    That's a weird mix of posts.

    Thinking the same thing... I don't think I posted in this thread. If I did, it was a major hiccup on the website.

    Like a dumbass it appears that I re-posted a quote from a previous conversation.

    Update on the beams for my friends cabin. He found a small mill in SC that could provide what he needed. They finally started framing this Monday. Here is a picture of the foundation and subfloor. If you look in the upper left corner, we built one of the timber frame trusses from the 8x12 timbers. Price we got for the steel connector plates from a fabricator in Augusta was too high so we bought 3/8" mild steel plate and a plasma cutter and fabricated our own. Each truss is 28' wide and rises 10'-6" and weighs about 2600 lbs.

    That's going to be nice. Don't know how I missed this thread. Would have offered some help, but not sure you would've wanted the freight charges from the west coast.
