• The entry porch and expansive lakeside porches of this seasonal timber frame home were crafted of Douglas fir with quad posts and double-sawn bottom chords. The interior was remodeled to include custom cabinetry from our fine woodworking division. See more on this home in our Residential Case studies.

  • Our West Coast crew raised the frame for this family retreat on a 200 acre working farm in Wisconsin. The home reflects the surrounding agrarian style, but has a modern, open floor plan with expansive views created using a mixture of timber and steel. Photo: Werner Straube Photography

    The owners of this summer retreat wanted a modest cottage home that looked like it had stood forever in a quiet state of bucolic grace. Crafted of timbers reclaimed from upstate NY barns, the frame celebrates original hand hewn surfaces, old mortise pockets, and peg holes.

  • Perched on the highest point in Kansas, this home is a commanding structure, not just in size, but in the artistry of design and materials. We're responsible for the timber frame, our fine woodworkers crafted its many stairs, and Exline Design takes credit for the rest.

    This timber frame pavilion in historic Seneca Falls NY takes its cue from the arch topped church windows of its Anglo-Gothic style neighbor, Trinity Church. When the snow melts, its traditional copper roof will be exposed. Sun or snow, this outdoor space offers shelter to enjoy views year-round. © Tom Watson

  • Waterfront views aren’t the only advantage of this Skaneateles, NY home's pond side setting — a high efficiency, geo-thermal system operates from within the pond. Inside, the house melds steel with timber to create a contemporary and clean aesthetic. We partnered with Holmes King Kallquist Architecture and David Lee & Company on this project.

    Great Room Gallery

     

    This East Coast home was modeled after heavy timber mountain homes commonly found in the western US. The design style was captured by including stout cross members and large reclaimed Douglas fir timbers accented with metal strapping.

  • This family home is nestled near the woods surrounded by sloping fields. With natural exterior coverings, the home flows from cedar-sided family areas to the antique barn wood sided garage and ‘party barn’. Both the home design and landscape design offer the homeowners and their young children room to grow.

  • Accessible Comfort

    The extensive porches on this home encourage the family and visitors to enjoy fresh air and get closer to nature. Designed and built to be functional and beautiful, the home accommodates the needs of a handicap child while providing comfortable living areas for the family to come together.

  • This project is the result of nearly 30 years in custom timber work and environmentally sensitive construction. Reclaimed, natural materials, energy efficiency, recent technologies, and craft intensive application have earned this home many awards including 2011 New Home of the Year from Fine Homebuilding and Designing and Building with FSC 2010.

  • This timber frame plays double duty with garage bays below and a studio retreat above. Curved bottom chord trusses accentuate the open space and mimic the lines of the gambrel roof. To see more timber frame trusses, view our timber frame trusses gallery.
