Shop Tour

Join Everett Skinner IV for an in-depth educational tour of our advanced timber frame design & manufacturing facility in Ellington, CT.

Start in the design department and learn about our design process. Then head into the shop, where design becomes reality. See our CNC machines in action, up close, with sawdust flying and timber frame joinery being crafted with precision, then hand finished, ensuring the highest quality, most authentic timber frame barns & kits available today. Learn about the many different milling bits in our CNC machines and the purposes of each. See how timber frame barn kits are made and how long it takes to create one. Learn all about joinery—the art of connecting timbers with only wood to wood connections—and why we’re blending modern technology with old-time tradition to bring new life to this lost art. Discover the difference between post & beam and timber frame. Learn how to choose the best type of timber for your project. Find out how we reuse sawdust by making timber pucks. And see what makes our timber frame kits the best.

Imagine your dream barn being designed & manufactured in our shop, brought to your site, and raised by our expert timber framers. Think about being part of your barn raising and the exhilaration you’ll feel when the frame is standing. Make your dream a reality by contacting us today. We are excited to get started on your project.
