non-structural decorative timbers

read about these in the recent 2010 issue - anyone know anything about these? Are they something you can add to a non-timber home to make it appear like one?

It will probably take us at least 3 years but will at least try and get the process started. I think we will try and get the floor plans done this year and then get some prices. That will give us a better idea on when we will have the money to get it done, hopefully sooner than later.

Yes, we went to visit Pineridge Timber Frame in Mount Forest this spring. That is who we are going with. The owners' name is Mike Madar and it's a small company but great quality. You can contact Chris Hasson and tell him that I sent you. They will be coming up North in July and we will be starting the initial plans. They always want to see the property before starting anything. Let me know how it goes.
