The timberframe craftsmen at Streamline are working exceptionally hard, while pretty much all other farmwork has had to stop for the winter.  The previous pictures show them using modern power tools, but that belies the essential nature of their precision work which relies primarily on  ancient techniques and methods and hand tools.  There is still plenty of hand work to be done, and these guys are true craftsmen of their trade in the large and historical context of the word.  Trish and I feel very blessed that these folks are right here in our community – most folks have to look very far and wide for these rare, archaic,  anachronistic, and valuable skills.
