The craft of hand cutting and raising timber frames.
Wood is an imperfect material that is constantly alive. As stewards of the craft, we do our best to interpret the subtle nuances of every piece we choose to include in a structure. All Settlement Post & Beam timber frames are connected with the best joinery possible. We use 100% mortise and tenon construction, locked with 1" hardwood dowels to preserve the fit. Everything that leaves our shop has been pre-fit to make for easy installation.
Unlike many larger shops we insist on having a hand in the timber frame raising. In order to have complete quality control we assemble the frames ourselves, or supervise a crew during assembly.
