Epilogue: In the Past

Excerpt from page 6.

Today's timberframe homes are historical and contemporary, relevant and vigorous. Flexible in design and inherently beautiful, they give evidence to the fact that the centuries-old craft of timberframing has returned as a practical and environmentally sensitive building technique.

The timber frame renaissance in North America began with a small group of New England craftsmen in the early 1970s and spread rapidly throughout the continent. Today, timberframing is practiced in nearly every part of North America, and there are hundreds of professional companies making thousands of homes annually. It has been a fortuitous confluence of awakened desires: builders who want work that is more interesting, challenging, and rewarding and owners who aspire to have homes that truly enrich their lives through the structure's art and craft.
