Beauty and craftsmanship that transcend the generations . . .
Timber framing is a simple but elegant building system using large wood posts
and beams that are carefully fit together with interlocking joinery -- mortise and
tenon joints secured with wooden pegs.
In addition to their aesthetic appeal, timber frames are very strong -- in Europe, it is
not uncommon to find timber frame structures dating to the 13th and 14th century.
In America, we are losing far too many of our beautiful old timber framed barns due
to abandonment, neglect or destruction by developers.
Using time-honored methods, King is building new timber frames to replace some
of those that have been lost. They are a part of our heritage, and a legacy we can leave
for the generations yet to come . . .

This barn serves as a multi-purpose recreation building for the owners and contains
a full kitchen and several lounging areas. The lower level leads to the pool behind,
and there's storage for tools and supplies for the family garden. Traditional stonework and a standing seam roof complete the picture -- perfect
