A few snaps of recent shop drawings for the Timber Framers Guild (TFG) covered bridge project in Chester, NH. Design and Engineering by Fire Tower Engineered Timber, production drawings, modeling, and detailing by Mike Beganyi. Project sponsored and organized by the TFG.
I brought the engineering team’s 3d solids model into SketchUp, cleaned up the geometry, and working from notes and sketches modeled the joinery and steel connections. Using LayOut I created the 2d shop drawings, adding text, notes, and dimensions. Depending on schedule, I hope to make the drive over to see the final days of assembly and installation.
