Websites We Like: TeddBenson.com

bensonwood.jpgTedd Benson has been a major force in the revival of timber framing. He's written books, appeared on This Old House, and most importantly, involves himself deeply in the actual construction of these aesthetically unique structures. We've been fans for quite a while and even reviewed our favorite of his books as one of our first posts on the site (here). There was also a time not all that long ago, when we were on the verge of heading to New Hampshire to beg for a job at his company, Bensonwood.

The other day, a carpenter/writer pal of ours pointed us to Benson's blog (www.teddbenson.com) and it's as impressive as the man's timber frame portfolio. Not surprisingly, Benson has a very thoughtful approach to the ideas of shelter, family, and generally how we live (and how little we really need in order to get by). The posts are lengthy, engaging, and well worth the time to read and consider.

If you're interested in more information on how the age old craft of timber framing collides with the computer era, we suggest reading this nice article from Tools of the Trade (written by the aforementioned carpenter/writer pal).

Check out Benson's blog here. Also, the Bensonwood portfolio is well worth a perusal.
