Timber Frame Raising ~ " Topping Off Ceremony "

It’s a Tradition – another timber frame raising is complete
in Black Mountain, NC.

Architect, builder and timber framers celebrate with a
“Topping Off Ceremony”, a tradition for centuries and
a legacy for timber framing; the ceremony where a small
evergreen tree or bough is anchored to the highest peak in
celebration of the craftsman’s successful raising, good fortune for the new owners and to honor the trees and land which made building the house possible. This tradition can be traced back to Europe and Scandinavia as well as Native American Indian tribes, as a symbol of thanksgiving and respect.
