Timber Frame Forums
Timber Framers Guild logo

    NOTICE: These forums are public and open to all, from highly skilled timber framers to non-timber framers. The forums are not formally monitored by the Guild staff. Therefore, the Guild and its staff make no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of the information found in the forums.

    Before relying on technical advice received through the forums, published written reference material should be checked in order to confirm the accuracy of the advice. In searching for a timber framer through the forums, as with hiring any subcontractor or professional from any other source, ask for several recent references (including those of other professionals on past timber framed projects, such as the general contractors) and check all references as to the timber framer's apparent skill, punctuality, safe construction practices, ability to stay within budget and general professionalism, as well as whether the job was completed on schedule, whether errors in the framing were made that needed to be corrected and the reference's overall satisfaction with the completed job.
