Massive 500 pound granite address sign between fir posts


Posts anchored on bedrock support a granite slab for an address sign
Builder Tom Stevens just finished building a striking chalet over looking a lake in the Laurentian ski country of Mont Tremblant.  He just needed a similarly impressive way to display the address of this beautiful home. 
But everything is rock in this area.
Tom is the kind of builder that can’t stand looking at large bulky connectors.  And yet there didn’t seem to be any easy way to anchor these large timbers to the bedrock. So using the common box store post anchors was not an option.
All the ideas he had were difficult, or expensive or both.

None of the available solutions were up for the job
When Tom saw that the 6x6 Titan Post Anchor could be a simple solution for the problem he faced he decided to use it.
Using a wedge bolt system he was able to anchor two timbers to the bedrock.  A half lap joint and bolts connected the cross bar.  This massive 500 lbs granite slab was then hung between the posts. 
Rumor has it that the slab weighs much more than 500 lbs
We are always amazed at the creativity of our Titan fans.  This was a very impressive project and the posts look like they are growing out of the bedrock.
