Framing is an art. The framing for the Barn was done by Joe Luiz firm Custom-Tec.
All framing is 2 x 6 and you can see from the pictures how the silos were fabricated and lifted into place.
The headers for the windows and door in the silo's were made in the workshop using a very big jig.
The workshop became the garage.
The fireplace foundations go three feet deep to support the massive weight.
Despite withstanding the 1938 (and several other) Hurricanes, the engineering
firm insisted on installing the massive steel beams. These are supported
by steel columns in the fireplace and similar steel structures at both gable ends.
