Timber Framing & Raising - 431

625.00

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 (Tom Nehil) 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! Chris Newman returns this year as the lead instructor. The class project is a 12x16 (8/12 roof) cabin designed by Chris and Tom Nehil. The finished frame will be for sale at the completion of the class (first come first served). Please enroll a month in advance to allow for materials preparation.
