June 1-3, 2018 Timber Framers Guild Western Conference

Many of our co-workers will be attending and presenting at the Timber Framers Guild Conference in Mt. Hood, we hope to see you there!
The Timber Framers Guild Conference is North America's largest event dedicated to the practice of building historically–inspired new construction using environmentally responsible techniques and large timbers for framing, connected with traditional joinery. Drawing several hundred professionals from a variety of disciplines, the TFG Conference is the only arena where architects, engineers, artisans, contractors, designers, building owners, and preservationists gather to learn about the resources, skills, and knowledge necessary to build timber framed buildings.
Dates: June 1, 2018 to June 3, 2018
