Timber Frame Raising

Enjoy the full experience of preparing timbers and raising a timber framed building. Fit mortise and tenon joints and peg them with white oak, very much like barn building 150 years ago. An engineer will discuss design elements. Skilled framers guide you through layout, boring and chiseling mortises, forming tenons, cutting wind braces, assembling bents, and finally the thrill of raising day! Enjoy real teamwork! Class projects are wither commissioned structures or our own 10x16 (12/12 roof) design (which are sold as student frames, first come first served). Please enroll a month in advance to allow for materials preparation.
