Build is proud to be a member of the Timber Framers Guild, a worldwide nonprofit association of timber framers. Timber framing is construction using larger wood pieces which are shaped and locked together. Often, timbers are finely prepared because they remain exposed which also exposes the skill of the craftsman involved.
Last year we partook in two separate timber framing joinery workshops at Whippletree near Peterborough. We are looking forward to using our expanded skills on upcoming timber frame projects.
The benefits of honing our handcrafting skills go beyond just timber framing, as this centuries old craft finds its way into our everyday construction work.
