Pleasant Valley Timberframing

We are members of the Timber Framers Guild.  We are trained and skilled at the traditional mortise and tenon, wood pegged methodoligy for making buildings and other structures.


Our specialty is small structures such as cabins, pool houses, play houses, storage buildings, entry-ways, and gazebos.  We are able to design and constuct larger buildings too such as homes and businesses that have that special exposed timber look and feel.  


Please contact us to learn all the advantages of traditional mortis and tenon constuction, especially if you have ever dreamed of owning a log cabin or converting a barn to a home.  Timberframes have many advantages over log homes and modern stick-built buildings.  A Timber Frame building can be built at competitive prices too!



The pictures here are of an 11’x 14’ shelter leading to a double door entry.  It was constructed using white oak posts, red oak beams, and ash rafters and collar beams.  The roof was planked with pine boards, then finished with shingles to match the rest of the house.  


There are 8 wind braces in this structure.  All are assembled without nails and screws.  Wood pegged mortise and tenon joinery was used throughout. 


The owner used an outdoor stain and sealer since this structure will be constantly exposed to the elements.  And now the structure will protect all who pass to and from these doors, while adding a strong and elegant element to the 9,000 square foot building.


You will see some pictures of the preparation for erecting the structure, before and after pictures, and signs of strong tradition, craftsmanship and the majesty of post and beam construction.


Contact us to discuss building your own timber frame cabin, home, gazzebo, guest house, get-away, play house or storage building.
