Timber Frame Talk



Our straw bale workshop spots are almost filled for next weekend. It seems like we have a delightful group of people coming. The social aspect of all of this is astounding.

Friday night's presentation is free and open to the public. It will run from approx. 6:30 till 9:30 pm. Here's what will happen in a nut shell:

-Timber framing techniques – presentation by Nader Naderi of Atlantic Post & Beam
-Group slide show: intro. to SB (history, benefits, essentials ) by Kim Thompson and Straw Bale Projects
-Look at site plans, give outline for weekend
-Review resource materials

If it rains, we'll still host the presentation on site. We hope/expect to have the roof on our house at that point, so we should be fine. Parking will be available a few hundred feet down the road in the empty lot on the right (thanks to the McMahon family), immediately after you cross the bridge (it's a highway overpass), *before* you arrive at our property.

**Please also note that Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Sept 2-4) will be available for workshop participants and helpers only. We kindly ask that you drop by and see us another time if you can't make it on Friday night.**

As badly as I wanted to attend the strawbale course...I have to attend a wedding in Digby...

I am interested in getting started on my very own strawbale adventure. But have no idea where to start...

Could you explain the process?

thanks

HI to Deb, previous poster-there are several books or just keep your eye on this blog or others. You will see the process unfold.

Kara, I know you're very busy but wanted to wish you good luck with the wall-raising and don't forget to have fun!
