How is a timber frame constructed?

Once the design phase is completed, we begin cutting the frame. We take timbers which have been sized on a four-sided planer, and hand plane them for a furniture-smooth finish. We then cut the joinery details, sand it, and oil the member. Once all members are cut, we transport the frame to your home site and assemble it. Assembly generally takes a few days.

When completed, the timber frame is like a fine piece of furniture. It creates a home with strength, character, warmth, and beauty. On a timber frame home, the finish work begins with the frame.
