The Benefits of Building With Timber
Timber (or lumber, as our friends across the pond call it) has been used to make buildings of various shapes and sizes for most of mankind's history. Using timber for buildings and framework is a practice that dates back to Neolithic times, approximately 10,000 BC. There are still some surviving timber structures found in Europe which are many centuries old. Not surprising when you consider that one of the best things about timber is how long it lasts. Providing it is properly preserved, a timber building will easily outlast the people who built it!
We've all got something that we love to do or would love to be doing 'if only we had more time'.

So what hobby or activity brings a smile to your face and makes your time a pleasure?
