Hello from Mark Davidson, join me here for posts about Traditional Woodworking including: Timber framing, old Ontario barns, structural design, tools of the trade and generally what keeps us busy at Whippletree.
I’ve previously been posting this information on Facebook and I’m excited to move the process to our website and I hope that you will offer your comments and questions about what you see here.
Rob and I visited the Wedding Barn this week for some cosmetic work on the timbers. The building is 95% closed in now and moving toward completion. It was great to see the structure with a roof and windows, this site has great views and a peaceful setting.
Thistle Ha Barn is located north of Toronto, and is one of the largest barns I’ve seen in Ontario at 50′ x 100′. I was hired to make drawings of the barn structure to help with planning for re-use. This is an awesome building surrounded by very nice farmland.
