A centralized location where forest restoration byproducts can be delivered, processed and made available to the public, the NBAIC will be developed as a HUB for knowledge sharing and innovating round wood timber frame design and engineering, natural housing techniques, and biomass product development; serving general contractors, natural home builders, innovators, students & interns, wood workers and more.

 
 

More on the Natural Building Arts & Innovation Center coming soon!
