  1. Hey Brice,

    On Barnwood Builders I see them taking down a lot of old barns that do not use this joint. Is it overkill? Maybe something we do because it looks cool?

  2. No, it is not overkilled, it is awesome to see and appreciate the work. Structurally it gives a lot of relish to withstand any tension. There is something to the look and feel those older joints lend to a frame. People live in them and everything about the frame affects that.
