Kiln Drying | Okanagan Timber Frame

Because the entire frame is brought to a similar moisture content levels, and essentially pre-shrunk before the final planing and before any joinery is cut, we see less joint separation over the life of the frame. If the wood placed in the frame is of different moisture content, as the wetter wood shrinks through the natural drying process that takes place in your completed frame, spaces will appear in your joinery.
