5. Anchor Beam - Shoultes Dutch Barn
This is a detail of the very distinctive Dutch Barn framework. The bents, or braced H-frames, consist of the verticle anchor posts, which support the horizontal anchor beam. The post and beam are held together by a mortise and tenon joint, with the tenon extending out beyond the post.
