Workshops and Seminars in the
Traditional Building Crafts
PETER HANEY, workshop founder and organizer, has lived in the Fort Collins, Colorado area since 1983, and has been a horse logger and traditional woodworker, specializing in log construction and handcrafted furniture. He also taught vocational skills in the southwest Pacific for three years as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Peter observes: "The student-instructor ratio is the key to our success--both beginners and experienced builders get the training they need because of the opportunities for one-on-one instruction."
Peter has had a variety of building experiences all over the world. He was the consultant for the restoration of the Hoffman Barn in Fort Collins, a unique example of a timber frame building constructed in 1864 when Fort Collins was still an Army Fort, protecting the emigrants travelling on the Overland Trail. He was the lead consultant for the restoration of the Burgess Pioneer Cabin located at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 1996 Peter helped restore the historic Virginia Dale Stage Station, built in 1862. He has built with logs in Russia and Argentina, and organized two timber framing workshops in Argentina in 1998 and 1999. Peter is a member of the Timber Framers Guild.
