The innate warmth, beauty, and durability of hand hewn wood evoke a long-ago era. Hand hewn wood relives a time of the frontier life where tough enduring pioneers worked with a sense of community, helping each other harvest and turning quality trees into much needed building materials. These tenacious people often spent days of painstaking labor to produce the finest hewn beams imaginable.

Hand hewn timbers were the backbone and lifeblood of enormous, magnificent buildings. These are the barns and buildings that gave back to our forefathers for generation after generation — housing animals, feed, and machinery that created income for their families and helped secure their survival. Using hand hewn timbers and beams assures we preserve these significant pieces of history to keep the ties to our past alive.
