Once or twice a year, something extraordinary happens. The Timber Framers Guild partners with a local non-profit or community to build a timber frame. Timber framers and volunteers come together to help raise the frame, the local community feeds the volunteers, and almost always, something magical happens: communities get stronger, friendships develop, and a bond is formed--both for the timber frame industry and the community that brought them there. A few of the more than 75 past projects include two houses for Habitat for Humanity, the Kicking Horse River Covered Bridge in BC, pavilions, boat sheds, a blacksmith shop, a synagogue roof in Poland, a downtown community barn, and a trebuchet.
