This structure will cover an outdoor cooking complex at a residence in Eastern Massachusetts. The complex will include a brick wood-fired oven, grills, counter and seating space. I cut the frame with locally-sourced white oak timbers using a variety of power and hand tools. The frame is assembled with mortise and tenon joinery and will receive a metal roof. Project in conjunction with Carsten Homstead of Homestead Heat.
For raising day we rented a hand cranked “genie lift” with capacity of 1000 lbs, to help us raise the three largest pieces (two plates and a ridge beam) that were each 16 foot 7×9’s. In green White Oak these pieces weighed from 500 to 800 lbs.
