the most recent sketch

This is the most recent, obviously incomplete, version of our SketchUp design. There are still many open questions, like what material thicknesses and what spacing to use for the timber frames, most roof construction details, insulation and general airtightness and so on...

We have currently decided on 450 spacings, 430 pink batts and 90x35 structural pine but we are unsure if 600 spacings and/or 70x35 would be sufficient. The timber framing standard AS1684.2 is of some help but is quite a hard read. It's basically learning carpentry theory while drawing :)

Please comment if you have any advice for us !
