Can I use green timbers for my frame?

Laurie Sharp

The completed barns on our web site were all built with green timbers.  In our area of northwestern Connecticut, eastern white pine and hemlock are readily available; mostly, we use white pine.

If you cut your timbers ahead of time, it is a good idea to stack your beams with stickers between so that they can air dry.  Even a few weeks of drying will make a big difference in how much they weigh.  Hemlock, by the way, is much heavier than pine!
