About

David D. Parker has been working on 18th-19th century wooden structures for more than 40 years. Early in his career, David became a registered Tree Farmer and for many years was a teamster driving horses in the woods of Vermont. David operated a band saw mill, built a solar dry kiln for drying lumber which he constructed in 1978, and belonged to the Timber Framers Guild of New England in the early seventies.  His passion for old barn frames inspired him to study English, Dutch and French frames and the history which brought these frames to the United States.
