Dr DoLitttle Grandson's Timber Frame Business

Philadelphia Inquirer | 12/27/2004 | His life is pegged to old techniques

Lofting, 59, said he learned timber framing from craftsmen in New England in the early 1970s. When he started his business in 1974, he said, there were only a few timber framers in Pennsylvania. But now, he said, there are about two dozen working in the area. He said he has trained a third of them...

If Lofting's name has a familiar ring, it is because his grandfather is author Hugh Lofting, creator of the Doctor Dolittle series of children's books.

His seven-member firm, with annual gross receipts of $800,000, includes his daughter, Elliott (an old family name), and his son, Hugh II.
