Timber Frame Design Consulting and Conditions Assessments

North Amherst, MA Barn

Goosewing Timberworks consults in two primary areas, the design of new timber frames and the condition of historic structures.

We work with clients, architects, and general contractors to design new timber frames, or to advise on structural and aesthetic issues for projects featuring timber frames or timber-framed elements – even if we’re not involved in the actual construction.

We also contract with individuals, non-profits and local governments to perform Historic Conditions Assessments, in which we analyze historic timber framed structures and produce reports about the current condition of the building and the recommended scope of work for possible restoration scenarios.

Featured above is the barn at North Amherst Community Farm, MA, which we assessed in 2014.
