Congrats to Iver Bowen on 10 years at Bensonwood!

When did you know you wanted to be a timber framer?
"My father's been a carpenter for over 40 years, and I worked with him on a bunch of projects, including two timber frames. I told him I wanted to learn more about timber framing, and he told me to buy Tedd's book. While reading the book I realized Bensonwood was only an hour away and I applied for a job."

What is your most memorable Beam Team moment?
"I have a ton of funny stories, but they might not be appropriate for social media!"

Where can you find me on the weekends?
"Working on my house, I have an awesome fixer-upper."

Bagels, Fruit, or Donuts?
