Clearing Out the Barn Sale
Fox Maple Timber Frames for Sale
While these frames are cut by students, the quality of joinery is at a very high level. Each of these frames were cut and erected in workshops. After dismantling, they have been fine tuned, sanded, oiled and packed ready for shipping. These frames are being sold as ready-to-assemble packages and come with detailed framing plans. All timbers are clearly marked for ease of assembly and raising. Anybody with basic building skills and common sense should be capable of assembling and raising these frames with just a few people. In most cases a crane will be necessary.
16x16 Hammerbeam Frame Now Available
22'x32' Hammerbeam Cape
This is a white pine frame with oak braces cut in the Spring 2014 workshop. The frame is clear span and is designed to accommodate a second floor loft in one bay with a cathedral bay dominated by the scissored hammerbeam bent. The frame package is available with or without the second floor loft system. The roof pitch is 14/12 and the posts are 8' plus, which can be cut to accommodate your needs and the first floor system design. This could be placed on a concrete slab, or a conventional floor frame system. This frame would make a comfortable cottage, or a nice workshop space.

Past Workshop Frames For Sale
The Workshop that Jack Built
This frame was sold to one of our past students, Jack Williams, to make a timber framing workshop at his farm in Sedalia, Missouri. He has now made the transition from University Professor to Timber Framer, specializing in gazebos, arbors and pergolas. The photo at bottom left is of an oak pergola he cut for a client in his new workshop.
He completed the enclosure and finish work mostly by himself, and also cut the eavesdropper loft system. The frame was raised with the help mostly from family and friends.
He says, "I really enjoy my shop and I am happy that it is timber frame... I spend a good deal of time out there. I have built 4 arbors and number 5 is probably going to happen. I am doing much better with the math but I'm slow and check myself plenty of times."
Only the 16x16 Hammerbeam/King Post frame, at left, is now available. These frames have both been sold.
