Welcome to the Northford Timber Framers class.  Like many of our former students, once you complete our 3 day course, you will have the design concept, skills, and knowledge to complete your own timber frame structure.  Whether you want to build a small shed or a 3 story home, it's all possible with timber framing.  


Building a wooden sculpture with no nails or iron has run fairly unchanged through the centuries.  We have deconstructed these giant puzzles and were ready to pass on the time old tradition of timber framing!


Things we go over in this workshop are simple, straight to the point concepts.  Each year we have a class sponsor who provide all of the beams and chooses a plan to be used.  This plan will be your introduction to square rule timber framing and will be your class project!  You will learn how the detailed plan was created and how everything fits together. 


The next class will be April 21st - 23rd of 2017


Tuition is $295.00 and includes:


Day 1 - (Coffee and Lunch will be provided)

We start out with a day of classroom instruction where we brief on:

- history

- how to layout your structure

- structural integrity

- brace, rafter, tie beam and joist details

- let in's

- Rules for square rule timber framing


Day 2- (Coffee and Lunch will be provided)

We move to the workspace and begin cutting mortise and tenons on beams as well as peg holes and let ins. 


Day 3- (Coffee and lunch will be provided)

We gather in George's workshop and answer questions, comments, concerns, and finally go on a tour of barns to help solidify the large amounts of information you have gathered on timber framing! 


_  Once you have completed the 3 day course, you will automatically receive the invitation to come back for the barn raising the following September!  The culminating event on your timber framing journey!


We look forward to hearing from you:  If you are interested in enrolling in our timber framing class, please send us an e-mail right from this website.  Just click the contact us link above!

    Dear George,
    Your story is amazing...
    I'm MaryLynn,Richard Sanislos oldest daughter and Kim McConnells sister.
    What an incredible doll house your brought to Kims school.
    I saw pics of the event on Facebook today, as I'm living in Ohio now.
    I too, have a great love of old barns, that stems from my childhood and my Dads love of them too.
    He painted many, and framed them in old barn wood.
    Dad really enjoyed visiting your home , with all your antique treasures.
    I'm sure you will be seeing more of my spirit filled father.
    He's a genuine giver and artist.
    So you both have a lot in common😊👍🏻
    Just wanted to reach out and thank you for being a blessing to so many.
    I see your wife is an AIrdale rescuer!
    I too have always rescued any of Gods abandoned creatures.
    Keep up your good works that you do so lovingly.
    Everyone needs an "Angel"
    MaryLynn H Shepherd
