Well it may not be completely old-fashioned but in this day and age it is close enough. Land Design is hosting an Old Fashioned Barn Raising in collaboration with Texas Timber Frames.
The barn is being raised at 209 Red Oak Rd, Boerne TX. The hosts will be there from 10am-6pm Thursday, July 9 through Saturday, July 11. Food and drink will be provided.
Timber Framing lends itself to many forms of green building by allowing infill with many different materials. It is also a mainstay of the residential open building methodology.
Below is a video virtual tour of Texas Timber Frame's Eden house plan.
