The term Bent and Bay System has remained primarily the same in the industry since the beginning of Timber Framing. This refers to a construction process where individual bents are created and raised into place. (Refer to diagram A) The space between the Bents is referred to as Bays. This style was created for ease of manual erection of a frame. Each Bent can be assembled on the ground and raised into place by man, horse power, or modern day crane; then connected together with Plates and Girts.

When it comes to wood selection there are numerous factors to consider: Overall Strength, Stability (how much its going to twist, shrink, and/or checks), Exterior Durability, Availability of Size and Lengths, and Cost of Raw Materials
