Expert Will Beemer has written the first guide to timber framing written specifically for beginners! He takes you through the entire process from start to finish, beginning with timber sourcing and ending with a finished building. Using full-color photos, detailed drawings, and clear step-by-step instructions, Beemer shows you exactly how to build one small (12 by 16 foot) timber-frame structure that’s suitable for use as a cabin, workshop, or studio. He also explains how to modify the structure to suit your needs and location by adding a loft, moving doors, or windows; changing the roof pitch; or making the frame larger or smaller. You’ll end up with a beautiful building, as well as solid timber-framing skills that you can use for a lifetime.
