Thought you all might like this video we made here at Artisanal Structures of the dismantling of a 1850's timber frame barn.
The timbers you see in the video are going to be used to build a home in Nazareth PA at Little Pond. This year’s project and workshop offerings utilize the construction of a 1200 square foot timber framed strawbale home with adjoining 500 square foot solarium/breezeway. All the stone, timbers and lumber for the frame, floors, trim, stone walls and details is repurposed material from a 1850’s barn. The walls are lime plaster exterior and clay plaster interior. The project focuses on natural building techniques and the re-salvaging of materials.
