This summer the Timber Framers Guild, in conjunction with Trillium Dell Timberworks, is hosting a raising and panel installation event in Geneseo, IL from August 12 to August 22, 2009, on behalf of the Antique Engine and Tractor Association. We will be assembling and raising a very large timber framed barn made from local white oak, and destined to house the collection of the AETA. Trillium Dell Timberworks of Knoxville, IL will be fabricating the timber frame, and providing project management support. The Timber Framers Guild will coordinate a training event around the rigging and raising of the frame, and the classing of the frame with modern insulation panels from Fischer SIPS of Louisville, KY. AETA, under the direction of President, Ron Miller of Geneseo, IL, is a membership organization dedicated to the preservation and display of antique power equipment. TDTW, under the direction of owner Rick Collins, is an Illinois company employing fifteen people and specializing in timber framing and historic restoration, and has been headquartered in rural Knox County since 1999. In addition to crafting new timber frames, Trillium Dell performs historic restoration on notable buildings including churches, barns, cabins, and commercial structures. The restoration side of Trillium Dell Timberworks continues to flourish as both private and public clients seek to preserve or reuse timber frame structures. The historic carpentry in these structures informs Trillium Dell"s strategy of building and restoration, as does Trillium"s goal of sourcing local building materials whenever possible.
