Timber Framing for the Rest of Us – Three Days (May 22-24 2017). This workshop covers basic “post and beam” construction as done by most contractors and owner-builders using sound building design and techniques and readily available mechanical fasteners made for the purpose. Morning classroom sessions cover structural principles and examples, including basic load calculations. Afternoon hands-on work consist of building a 6-poster sauna, similar to the building described in Chapter 4 of Rob’s The Sauna book. The roof is 12′ by 16′. The textbook, supplied, is Rob’s Timber Framing for the Rest of Us. Prices above are for Single and Couple registrations. One textbook is given per couple.
