We can build any timber frame using one of our designs or your own custom design. We have experience with both small & simple frames and large & complex ones. If you'd like us to build a frame of your own design, our construction process looks like this.
Step 1: Estimation
Upon receiving architectural drawings of your design, we will provide one free estimate, which will include (2) hours for planning meetings. A free cost estimate based on those meetings will be provided. Design revisions requiring updated estimates and additional meetings will incur a consultation fee.
Step 2: Contract
We will prepare a contract for services based on finalized estimates.
sTEP 3: Obtaining material
We build our timber frames from trees that are meaningful to you, or we obtain logs from trees that are sustainably-harvested with the health of our native forests in mind. Inclement weather does play a factor in obtaining raw material. We will do our best to keep you informed about delays due to weather conditions.
step 4: Custom Sawing
We custom-cut each wood beam on our sawmill in Northeastern Ohio.
Step 5: Hand-Cut Joinery
Our experienced timber frame craftsmen hand-craft each joint of your frame. Please allow us sufficient time to get your frame perfect.
Step 6: Delivery & Assembly
We will transport the disassembled frame components to your construction site. Frame assembly typically takes about a week, depending on the size and complexity of the project. A crane is usually required to hoist the assembled roof trusses into place.
Step 7: Optional Add-ONs
We can provide additional services and materials at your option, including sales and installation of structural insulated panels (SIPs) for roof and/or walls, custom-cut siding, paneling, flooring, trim, and decking.
