The Art of Timber Framing

Today, most modern buildings are built with just enough support so that they don’t fall.

Compare this approach to classic timber frames. An honest, straightforward way to support a structure. A time-tested method of construction that goes back many generations.

This is not a disposable building – quite the opposite.

Using the organic strength of a tree’s grain to its most significant advantage, an adequately built timber frame structure will outlive all of us. Some timber frame buildings in Japan are still standing a thousand years after they were built.
