    Hello, I am just writing this email to inform you that I am a new student to timber framing and have recently graduated from a 3 month program for timber framing. As a new student I wanted to thank you for having such a great site and for being so informative. As a beginner its tough trying to design and make even the simplest of projects as its all so new. Every time I look something up regarding timber framing there you are helping people out. I think thats awesome and I am glad I subscribed to your email list. Thank you very much!!!!
