Mortise and Tenon Barn
New England Style Barns
A mortise and tenon barn describes a traditional building method at the heart of post and beam buildings. Post and beam framing is connected together using a method that fastens joints together without nails or metal hardware. A 7,000 year old tradition, this technique is sturdy and long lasting. There are many people these days that would like to build their own custom timber frame barn using this traditional framing style. The term “timber frame” describes a house or other structure which has a wooden frame, or pre-prepared sections of wood used for building a home or structure. We have found that the popularity of timber frame barn kits is on the rise.
