This ongoing project began with the the construction of two outbuildings on a rural 10-acre site on the east side of Oklahoma City. Later, it involved remodeling of the main residence entry to complement these structures. The homeowner wanted to explore the potential for using stone and heavy timber construction techniques for outbuildings on the property. The first building was a modest "garden barn," one that housed gardening and mowing equipment. The 15' x 25' structure utilized heavy timber red oak trusses, cedar board siding inside, custom rough sawn cedar windows, and antique English clay tile shingles. The second building was a 25' x 75' entry barn that houses a tractor, wood shop and equipment. For this structure, larger trusses with bolt plates fashioned after 19th century designs, copper gutters and downspouts, stenciled and stained concrete floors and large custom doors were utilized. The final timber project involved the dramatic new entry for the main house, and re-structuring the entire roof to support a solid deck and antique clay tile shingles as seen on other heavy timber projects on this site. A small entry vestibule was expanded and extended to form an entry more in scale with the house. Inside, mirrors were used to create the illusion that the trusses continued beyond the stone wall, thus giving an open feeling to the entry. Slate tile floors and "craftsman style" columns were incorporated into the design to complement the more Spartan stained concrete floors that dominate the first floor. In the two-story living room, this required adding " steel plates spanning 35 feet on both sides of the laminated beam. Ganged studs were inserted in the walls to support the load. Splice plates had to be bolted due to limitations of materials and access.
