“Timbers have an outsized impact.” With post and beam, you can establish a powerful mood, an ambiance that can appear sophisticated or humble, inviting or formidable, depending on the eye of the beholder and the desire of the master builder.

You won’t find anyone who knows this better than Bert Sarkkinen, and his team at Arrow Timber Framing. You can learn some of their secrets at the ATF 10-minute workshops during the four-day exposition. You might be interested in their topics, one of which will demonstrate how inexpensive timber accents radically recast a room’s mood.

“With decorative timber accents, you can focus your investment and create a big impact with just a few key changes,” Sarkkinen says. “It’s not just swapping out a couple of beams. When we can give you the right look and feel, you are suddenly living in a rustic cabin or European villa.”

Arrow Timber FramingAt the event, you can learn about Decorative Timber Elements and about ATF aesthetic philosophy, which incorporates an appreciation for asymmetry, a balance between strength and elegance, and a holistic perspective that values both little- and big-picture design.

“We work with dog-on-a-bone tenacity for our clients,” Sarkkinen says. “We work hard with your ideas. We keep pushing, pulling, and stretching until we get it right for you.”
