We have started offering the opportunity for craftsmen to participate in Timberframe classes either helping restore antique barn frames or make new frames. We are looking to offer 5 day courses including food and accommodation on our property Mohaka River Farm. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating in a course. Alternatively join the team to make your own kit-set barn frame and gather your friends to help with the raising.
We cover the following as you participate in a barn restoration or manufacture: Timber framing history, Types of barns, Anatomy of a barn, layout, joinery techniques including training in mortise and tennon joinery using traditional and modern tools and test fitting
