Hi everybody, I am currently a senior in high school, and my senior project is on timber framing. It is a paper/presentation type project, my topic is "Why timber framing over a conventional stick built structure?" I don't know if this is breaking the Forum structure, I hope not, but i would love it if people would respond to this, telling me why they love timber framing, and why they choose to do it over conventional building?
Please do not limit responses to that one question, please feel free to elaborate on anything you would like.

Thank you so much.
