Inboard Posts

This thoroughly hip house in Kearny, Nebraska (who knew?) incorporates those fancy Pella corner windows with the sharp bend in the glass. The client loved these units and was not going to accept any posts in those two corners with the prairie view. We pulled the posts in the corners, and spun them forty five degrees. This spin made the hip (rafter) joinery easier and allowed the arch for the eyebrow dormer to land in a swallowtail joint. The client followed through with elegant detailing and great color schemes, throughout the rest of the project. The architect on this project, Paul Irwin, worked with Benson Woodworking for only a couple years, but designed a few homes during that time that include what I consider to be some of the best examples of interaction between building and frame.
