Hybrid timber framing utilizes post & beam as well as modern & historical timber framing systems to create the ideal timber experience in a home or structure. Design is not held back by the constraints of traditional stick-built homes, or full timber frames. With this flexibility, the design must be carefully considered before the build starts.

With Hybrid Timber Framing, your options are many, but initial decisions have a massive impact on final result and satisfaction. This book educates owners, builders and architects on the decisions that must be covered during the design and planning stage. It is rich with ideas imagery and instruction to jumpstart your inspiration and planning.

It is a collection of high level techniques, ideas, and tips to avoid common pitfalls and ensure you get what you want with an enjoyable process.

This guide will help you plan and build it right the first time! Important topics to consider include:

• How to achieve optimized beauty by first defining ugly
• Where to draw the line with hybrid timber framing
• Seven chapters portraying diverse and unique timber styles
• How to avoid the over simplified “Hail Mary” approach

He is especially proud of his design, production and manufacturing team who he credits to the ongoing growth and company success.

This book provides the crucial knowledge needed for every phase of the project from planning to completion. This guide will help you protect your financial investment and optimize the look of post and beam construction.

DESCRIPTION:

The Casanovas.

Twelve of the world’s most eligible bachelors are personally invited to take a seat on this exclusive, private match-making club. (Piper: Sharing is caring?)

The purpose? To find the perfect wife. Ten women are considered, but only one is chosen. Each of these men are after one lucky girl’s heart. Vetting these ladies is a year long event. Contests. Forms. Interviews. Demonstrations. Galas. (Piper: All of which I missed. Darn.)

The prize? One million dollars or a ring from the bachelor of her choice after the yearlong mutli-engagement period is over. Lady’s choice. (Piper: Show me the money.)

The problem? Me. I need cash more than anyone could possibly understand, and there’s no way in hell I’d ever be invited to woo twelve men for a chunk of change. (Piper: Good thing I know the coordinator.)

The promise? To save my family from losing their house, their business and their hope. All I need is a shot at the position. (Piper: Determination, haircare products and a strut like I own the place will do the rest.)

Piper: These boys are in for a treat. Maybe. Possibly. What did I just get myself into?

The Casanova Club – Only one can win her heart.
