During this course you’ll learn a range of timber frame building techniques, how to use tools safely and correctly, marking out, measuring and cutting the frame as well as frame raising. 

Also included are talks on planning, ecological building materials and low energy homes. You will gain lots of hands-on experience culminating in a finished timber frame at the end of the week. 

There will also be time during the course to ask questions about your own projects so bring along drawings and plans with you too, if you like. 

The course is for anyone with an interest in sustainable construction and self-build. This course welcomes self-builders, construction teachers, individuals looking to re-skill and architects.
