Sometimes you just have to admire timber frames other than your own timber frame home. Of course, we are just a little vested in many, since we design and build timber frame homes.
Today I find myself admiring the work of our joiners and the inspiration of our clients. This kingpin crowns a lovely breakfast nook in a mountain home. It will be there long after we are all gone, allowing generations to enjoy the work of the craftsmen who created it.
Heavy timber and the joinery that it takes to bring it all together have graced homes, churches, and buildings for centuries and today the work still stands.
What a treasure!
