Timber Frame Auction

Sauna? Tack Room? The frame timbers will be harvested with draft power and crafted by a member of the Timber Framer’s Guild. Final work and assembly will occur on site at the 2017 Draft Animal Power Field Days. Visitors can bid on the the frame on Sunday morning. Winner will be responsible to arrange transport from NH and assembly on their property. Local storage is available.
