Carpentry: Timber Framing

Carpentry is a profession with many different fields. I enjoy this as my choice of careers because of this diversity and the satisfaction I get when looking at something I built. Knowing that it is built well and will be used for generations also provides me with pride and recognition something most people like to feel about their endeavours. 
This structure is my timber frame barn during the construction process. Timber framing was historically a way to build large wooden structures and was very utilitarian by nature. This method of construction has largely been replaced by steel beam construction. Timber framing has moved away from utility in today's world and has become a method of form more than of function.
