How long does it take to erect one of your timber frames? Can I do it myself? What kind of tools do I  need?

Answered by Derek Folsom

Typically it would take us about a week to raise a frame. If you have some general construction experience you could probably raise the frame yourself. You will need basic power tools plus some comealongs and nylon straps.
