The timber framing and the stonework are what make this modern barn stand out. The timber framing of barns is the method of joining heavy timbers by using mortise and tenon joinery. This style and method of building are hundreds of years old as it predates the use of iron nails. The log house joinery is secured with hard wood pegs that are sometimes called tree nails. There are several examples of early timber frame barn structures that you will find all over America that date back all the way to the late 1600s. Some of these barns are still standing and in use today. You will find plenty of examples of timber framed buildings in Europe that date back as far as the 13th and the 14th century. After the industrial revolution and during the early part of the 20th century, the method of stick framing became a more popular method of building because of the availability of nails that were mass produced. Combine that with the variety of lumber and timber products that were available and the need to build houses and buildings in a faster manner. Timber frame houses are known for their longevity
