I limit my repair work to “historically accurate” work in so much as possible. Each project is evaluated in terms of my ability to carry out the necessary work in an effective and timely manner. Repair work is generally considered secondary to new frame construction. It is also usually only carried out on a strictly time and material basis.

The pictures below show a bit of what I’ve done in the past.

I do offer limited consultation services as well. I get a fair amount of requests for consultation regarding barns, houses , and even churches framed in heavy timber. Normally, I assess the framework in terms of structural conditions and make recommendations on repair priorities, methods, materials, etc. I’ll gladly furnish a written report with reference photos and drawings if requested. I have done consulting work for private residences, architects, and governmental entities in the past. Again, I try to limit this service to within a 30 mile radius of our farm.
