I have nothing but the highest praise for this course and the level of instruction provided by Jason and Derek. Further, they were always on hand to answer any questions or lend a hand. The instruction was at the perfect level in that it was up to the students to suss out some of the joinery.
Jason and Derek were the most amazing and patient teachers. It was truly my best week of the summer. They taught me skills I will carry with me the rest of my life. There was not enough room on the evaluation sheet to express how amazing the course was.I might take the course again in the future just for the sheer fun of it.
Everything exceeded my expectations. I am very interested in the advanced course.
Absolutely enjoyed the course. Jason's love of teaching and thorough knowledge were valued. I wish I could have spent more time learning from our instructors.
All course content was clear and concise. I thought the course was well put together. Instructor was always available to answer questions
The instructors have a wonderful approach to teaching to teaching. I enjoyed the ability they had to lead us to the correct solution without giving the correct answer. This made it far easier to commit to memory the skills and solutions to be successful. Great job!
It was a great week and a fantastic experience. You made us feel very welcome.
We had a great time! We were quite discouraged after Monday because we were so far behind. But by the end of the week we felt good about the work we were doing and because of how much we were learning. It was fun to see the frame go up on Saturday!
This is a top notch course and I believe that your teaching ability and technique shone through by the fact things (frames fit, structure up) went well!!
Great course even the second time!
Wish the course was longer. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
I really enjoyed the course. Jason does an excellent job explaining the stops and he allowed lots of time for questions and opportunities to explore. We worked hard and had a great time.
Best week I' ve spent in a long time. The time flew by too fast. A very professional and laid back feeling from both Jason and Mark was appreciated.
All in all the course was awesome. I would have paid more for the opportunity and look forward to a long term relationship with Gibson Timber Frames.
The course moved at a good pace and it was great having a partner to discuss cuts.
Great course and excellent instructors. Best course I' ve have had in years. I would like to see a part II of the course.
Great experience. Learned a ton that I will be able to use in the future. Exceeded my expectations.
A great balance. Jason gave us enough information but not too much so we learned how to figure for ourselves.
Great course. I feel we got more than our money' s worth.
Great hands on course. Instruction and setup were excellently done.
Very enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.
Jason and Richard were great instructors.
Above and beyond what I expected. Really fun!
Even questions regarding our own projects were addressed.
Great course. Thanks again. We will keep in touch.
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this timber frame course. There was a perfect mix of hands on versus theory and instruction, being heavy on the hands on side which was desired and good for the way I learn. Jason did not spoon feed us with all the necessary information but left us room to calculate for ourselves some aspects of the build, so some thinking is required.
I was also impressed with the amount of information Jason is selflessly willing to share and offering of his professional assistance to anyone involved in the course who had a project they were intending to tackle after the course.
Jason's old timber frame barn lends itself perfectly to the atmosphere for this course which felt warm and inviting as soon as I walked into the loft workshop area. Jason has an easy going but very confident teaching technique. He or one of the other instructors was always available to address any questions as work progressed.
The comradery among Jason, other instructors and course participants grew stronger every day and by the end of the week we all had some new friends! I found the week went by very quickly, probably because we were kept very busy from start to finish. On the final day I found myself wishing it was not already over!
Safety during the course was stressed and paramount throughout the week.
I highly recommend Jason's company and course to anyone who wants to learn more about the fine art/craft of square rule timber frame building. My sincere thanks to Jason, Mark and Richard! Paul H
I don' t often give courses 100% evaluations but this one was excellent. Mark M.
Awesome course. Wasn' t a great handyman before, still couldn' t claim to be one after. But I would definitely feel comfortable building a timber frame structure after this course. Graham M.
I am completely satisfied with this course, instructors, and atmosphere! Kudos to all!! It is wonderful that you share all this information so unselfishly.
This course exceeded my expectations by far. Instructors were knowledgeable, respectful of our abilities, and supportive. A wealth of info every day.
