One of the things I like best about building timber frames is the heritage and history of the craft. Traditionally, raising a timber frame structure was a festive community event. Times may have changed, but a timber frame raising is still a worthy cause for celebration.
To that end, Black Canyon Builders is throwing a party. We’ll be raising the frame for the guesthouse at the Day House property. The raising will actually occur from June 6 –10, but the party will be on June 11, 2011. It’s open to everyone, and we’re not going to put you to work.
More details to follow in the next few days. For now, I found this cool time-lapse video of timber frame raising in New Hampshire for inspiration.
Mark Saturday, June 11, on your calendar. The party will go on all day.
