The Guild’s activities support companies in these ways:
Few of these are likely to appeal to a guy with a chisel in his hand, yet each one is vital to a well-run, prosperous company. And each and every one of these items can be enhanced and expanded—if we have financial support from companies. The TFG will not thrive on individual memberships alone.
Timber frame companies have been benefiting from the Guild’s strong brand for many years.
With the expansion of service for Company members, the Guild can broaden its focus from a solely craft-based vision to one that includes outreach to specifiers and end-users (architects, engineers, general contractors, and building owners—the people who make buying decisions) increasing even further the Guild’s value to member companies. Our business-related efforts are less about “Expand the Demand” and more about telling the story of timber framing, craft, our companies, and the benefits of timber framing to our communities and environment. Timber framing has a compelling history and a dynamic present and future. The Guild has developed 35 years' worth of stories that inspire and inform consumers as well as those who advise them. Our community is strong and the Guild is proud of our members and their commitment to craft and service.
