Today, most modern buildings are built with just enough support so that they don’t fall down.
Compare this approach to classic timber frames. An honest, straightforward way to support a structure. A time-tested method of construction that goes back many generations. This is not a disposable building – quite the opposite. Using the organic strength of a tree’s grain to its greatest advantage, a properly built timber frame structure will outlive all of us. In fact, some timber frame buildings in Japan are still standing a thousand years after they were built.
