Our passion and goal at Timber Frame HQ is to share information and inspiration about these sustainable structures. Placing a wetting bush is the timber framing tradition when a frame is complete. Take a look at these bare frames, shared with us and you, by premier timber frame companies around the United States and Canada. Enjoy!
