Our Mission

The Guild is a non-profit organized for educational purposes to provide training programs for timber framers, disseminate information about timber framing and timber frame building design, display the art of timber framing to the public, and serve as a general center of timber framing information for the professional and general public alike.

Further, we seek to: 

  • Perpetuate and strengthen the robust craft of timber framing and building methods that coordinate well with timber framing; 
  • Communicate information about timber framing methods, events, and people (in other words, tell our story) in as many forms as is viable; and
  • Build community, something inherent in the timber frame raising, through shared energy at community building projects and any other opportunities we find.
