Renovation and New Construction with Timbers

Together, we renovated a late-1700s timber framed mill

by Peter von Tiesenhausen
The call came to reconstruct the Sunrise Mill in Pennsylvania from the late 1700s
using hand tools. Really? Timber frame a water-driven sash mill, by hand, in oak? If
you ask my wife and sons about trips we’ve taken around the planet, you would
undoubtedly hear that I cannot pass by an open-air museum or a site where old
ways are employed. Maybe I should have been born in a previous century.
