In this presentation we will confront the myth that timber framing is obsolete and provide you with the tools and details needed to make traditional timber framing work today. We will look at the past and present timber frame vernacular in California and discuss the nuts and bolts of detailing a timber frame as well as the design process and costs of timber framing.
Leif Calvin has been company steward of Timber Creations since 1993. Based in Santa Rosa, Leif has been building custom commercial and residential timber frames for 15 years in California. Leif has also directed historical timber work in Alaska, as well as contemporary timber work in Hawaii, Washington and Oregon.
