From Harmony Timberworks
The following illustrations give examples of how to connect different timber components to a structure. Please realize that every structure and every connection to that structure are different and should be treated as such. The below connections may be overkill for your specific project, but they also may be inadequate. Every connection of a timber system should be engineered and every measure should be taken to exactly match the engineer's details. This engineering service can be included in your purchase of a Harmony Timberworks timber system.
