Here's a photo of the cruck frame we raised on Friday; the first one we've done with curved cruck braces besides the already curved cruck blades and tie beams. We hope to do another next year at Heartwood.
Two of the cruck blades had their curve ripped with a chain saw jig (the others were hewn), and the offcuts were wide enough to get curved braces for the walls, too. It was nice to be able to use what would otherwise be waste.
This frame will be a porte cochère with the sills raised on 3' stone walls.
