Timber Frame & Shop Tour Day 2

Shop Tour and Open House

This July 26th and 27th, 2014, we will be hosting an open house at our shop and a nearby finished timber frame home. If you have ever wanted to see our finely crafted timber frames first hand this is an excellent opportunity. The informal open house will be available on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 3 pm. The shop and home demonstrated two different types of timber framing styles as well as the different types of timber species that can be used. As many have told us, pictures just don’t convey the warmth, strength and coziness of being inside a timber frame so why not see for yourself. We will be available to answer any questions you may have about timber frame construction and how you can easily incorporate it into your dream home or upcoming project.

Spring Hand Raising

Calling all Timber Frame Enthusiasts!

Carrying a timber a past hand raising

Past Hand Raising

Raising a timber frame is without a doubt the most dramatic aspect of the craft. Within hours, a stack of assembled timbers is transformed into a free-standing structure. Our typical raising involves cranes or heavy equipment and many who observe the process remark about the excitement and express a desire to participate. Unfortunately the size, scope and safety concerns during a typical raising are too large to allow for voluntary participants. It is unfortunate because community raisings are fine American tradition that we would love to foster and participate in more of. Well low and behold we have a project in the works that is a perfect fit for a hand raising and we hope you will take the opportunity to join us. Whether you a true timber frame lover or just interested in learning more about the craft we cordially invite you to join us in this fun project.

The Project

Rendering of Addition Frame


The project is a 18′ by 16′ Timber Frame addition that is very near to our shop. Though the project may be small in square footage it is big on details.
The frame features:

  • Eastern White Pine Timbers
  • Tension Tie Beams with Wedged Joinery
  • Dovetailed Purlins
  • Spline Girts

The What, How, and When?

We now have a date fro the hand raising; Saturday June 23rd. The event will start at 9 but if you like you can arrive a half hour earlier. Following a basic safety and lifting plan discuss we will begin to lift the first bent shortly after. We would like to get the rasing off to a good start so please try to arrive early so you don’t miss all the fun.

(This event has past and no longer has a notification associated with it.)

Note: Signing up for event notifications will not put you on our mailing list. To sign up for our newsletter please do so here

What should you bring?

Most importantly bring your posistive attitude but if you have personal protective equipmnet; hard hat, safety glass, etc. feel free to bring them along. Safety is our prime concern and we will provide use of needed equipment(mostly hard hats) during the day.

Please Note: The hand raising will quite literally be a hands on event and participants should expect to do some lifting and get some sawdust on them. If you would rather observe than participate please indicate that when contacting us so we can effectively plan the raising.

We hope this will be a rewarding experience for all involved and look forward to seeing you there.

If you have a specific project in mind, especially for this coming building season today is the time to get in touch with us.

A great opportunity for anyone interested in forestry in general as well as timber framing. Informal tours of our shop as well as a completed home will also be a part of the event. The home’s timbers, as well as flooring and millwork, came from trees in the forest that will be featured in the walk.

Each frame has its own character and you will be able to see two different timber framing styles. In addition to the gorgeous timber frame the completed house features many green techniques/technologies and offers a unique opportunity to see so many special systems tied together.
