Mortise and Tenon Timber Frame Cottage

This 26ft x30ft cottage is located outside Winchester, VA.

The Mortise and Tenon timber frame bent is 19ft x 30ft and was milled and handmade

by Rock Ridge Contracting out of Black Oak logs.

Mortise and tenon joinery has been around for centuries, it is very sturdy and eliminates the need of nails or screws to hold it together.
