Historic Timber Frame Barn Raising​


This 10 minute film details step-by-step the traditional raising of a large timber frame barn - a historical symbol of community support, effort and celebration.   Today - the raising of a modern day timber frame home doesn't differ that much from the methods used by our forefathers - cranes and slings have replaced the pike poles of yesteryear and today we only need a handful of workers to raise the structure, but that sense of community and celebration are still very much a part of the experience.


And yes - we've had more than one client dance under their timber frame after it was fully raised.   It's what dreams are made of after all.
