Smugglers Creek


This oak framed house was built on the edge of a Cornish smugglers creek. It features a cruck frame, Queen post truss and oak rafters. Because of the narrow access, all the timber was raised by hand (with the help of a gin pole), by a team of five men in just one week. The American Timber Framers Guild voted it ‘Frame of the Year’ in November, 2000.
