Anyone planning a spring barn raising.
« on: December 19, 2009, 02:50:37 pm »
Thought I would throw the question out now.
I would like to attend and participate in a barn raising somewhere in the midwest.

Anyone know of one.

Thanks,   Thackery

I did a quick google search on:   timber frame raising 2010 ohio (since you are in OH)

and got a bunch of hits.  For example, a place called hearthstonehomes.com has a couple events in Kentucky coming up.  I don't know about them or what they do.  Just a thought.

Hearthstone is about half way between Asheville and Knoxville. It's a fairly large company (or was) that fabricates mostly sawed-log houses.

Their timber frames are cut with a Hundegger machine.

We will be raising a 1897 timber-frame barn west of Janesville Wi (South central) in about a month.  We haven't picked a date yet, but I am lobbying for a Saturday in April.  I will post a new thread when I know more.

Rooster,

Let me know about your barn raising.  Hopefully I can try to make it.  BTW - Next week end (if things go as planned) I will be at Gregg Mullins place in Lexington, Va working on the annual VMI/Guild project.
