April Timber Framing Class

The April 2008 Purely Post and Beam Class had 18 people from all over the country. They raised a 24x24 pine timber frame complete with dovetail, mortice and tenon, birdsmouth, and pocket tenon joinery. They learned how to calculate roof rafter angles and basic beam sizing as well as how to work together. Our next class is our Small Housebuilding Class (currently 16 enrollees), a one week long session in which students learn a variety of construction techniques from working with prefabricated panels to building your own panels, window and door installation and metal roof installation.
