I’m excited to be joined by David Hourdequin of D Remy and Co. an engineering firm in the mountains of North Carolina. I’ve been working with David for a number of years on several timber frame projects and I thought it he would be a good candidate to be on the show to discuss timber frame engineering.
In the interview we are going to talk about the value a timber frame engineer brings to your project, the process to get a set of plans stamped and engineered, what the differences between the structural engineer and a timber frame engineer and we will follow all that up with a special message from David.
