Hello Everyone!
Just wanted to reach out to you all and let you know that Artisanal Structures of Bethlehem, PA, will be have a series of workshops this summer; Timberframing, Strawbale walls, Lime and Clay Plaster, Cabinetmaking, Concrete countertops, cob oven and Dry Stone Wall. The workshops are being operated in partnership with Woodcraft supply and Down To Earth Design.

Currently we are dismantling a barn build in the 1850s which will be repurposed to build the 1200sq ft home and 500sq ft solarium/breezeway. Everyone who takes part in the workshops will be part of the team that will be building this home. Workshops start in June!

Hello Mark,

Please say hello to Sigi for me...its been a few years. It would help if you posted more info about the course and your background in timber framing besides just the link away from Permies. There is a real interest in timber framing here at Permies, and your course is much closer for some folks, less expensive than many offered, and sounds like a good "orientation and basics" course.

Regards,

j

Hello Chad and Jay,

Chad, So glad to hear your close by! The price listed on the website for the timberframing workshop is for the whole week, $375 and it goes from June 29th to July 3th. There is camping ($10 per night) as well as basic lodging ($15 per night) at the Little Pond Arts retreat where the workshop and raising will take place. All you have to do is add however many nights you are staying to your cart with the timber frame workshop and check out.

Here is the accommodations page for you to check out: http://www.artisanalstructures.com/events/little-pond-accomodations/

Hope to see you there!

Jay,
Thanks for the advice, I am new to this forum. Just trying to get the word out about these workshops as much as possible. I will be sure to say hello to Sigi for you, she is a great member of this team.
The week of the timber frame workshop will consist of first the raising of the frame of the new home using timbers from the barn we are dismantling; those will be precut prior to the workshop. Then during the workshop the rest of the solarium will be cut and raised by the participants. This course will be great for an orientation and basics course in Timber Framing.

I hope this helps!

Mark
