Timber Framers Guild to construct a Timber Frame Building
in Old Town Square: Building will be donated to the Gardens on Spring Creek


The Timber Framers Guild, a national non-profit organization, is holding a training workshop in Fort Collins for professional timber framers from across the country. As part of the workshop, participants will complete a 20’ x 23’ timber frame building, made of beetle-killed pine, that will be donated to the Gardens on Spring Creek to be an Outdoor Classroom.

The public is invited to view this one-of-a-kind building as it is assembled in Old Town Square on October 16th and 17th. Frameworks Timber, a Fort Collins company, will install the building at the Gardens on Spring Creek on October 18th.

The Gardens on Spring Creek is grateful to those who have donated to this project: Frameworks Timber, Partners Roofing, CTL Thompson, Vogel Concrete, Lafarge Concrete, Fort Collins and Windsor Rotary Clubs, Odell Brewing Company, and the Friends of the Gardens on Spring Creek.

Workshop participants will learn about math-free design and fabrication from Welsh artist and historian, Laurie Smith, who will discuss medieval geometric design principals. Master scriber Glenn Dodge of New Hampshire will teach scribing techniques.
The Gardens on Spring Creek is located at 2145 Centre Avenue, Fort Collins.
