One of the challenges of building a timberframe structure was finding a reliable source for all of the timbers at a good price and having them cut on a schedule that suited my needs. I saw an ad in a local paper that advertised—lumber for sale for barns and sheds,custom cut,will deliver. I gave the man a call and told him what I was building and as it turned out he lived about 10 minutes from me and that he could mill everything I needed for the shop at a very reasonable price—.50...

The Hole in My KitchenFor the past two years we have lived with a hole in the wall of the kitchen where the fridge was. I was going to turn this into a pantry, but we decided to put the fridge back in. We found a fridge that would accept custom panels.

DesignI drew up several design...

I’m sure most of you know I started building beehives. Well, I thought I’d write an article about the benefits of these special hives and see what happens. I submitted the article to Bee Culture magazine, and they accepted it! The article came out in the April issue and I’ve bees swamped with orders ever since. I am now 4 weeks behind in orders and they’re still coming in! In case anybody’s interested, you can find the article here.
