Traditional Timber Frame Buildings
We are members of the Timber Framers Guild. We are trained and skilled at the traditional mortise and tenon, wood pegged buildings and structures.
Our specialty is cabins and other small structures such as storage buildings, entry-ways, and play-houses. We are able to design and constuct larger buildings too such as homes and businesses that have that special exposed timber look and feel.
Talk to us about all the advantages of traditional post and beam constuction, especially if you have ever dreamed of a log cabin or similar exposed wood structure. Timberframes have many advantages over log and stick-built buildings and can usually be built at a competitive price. We can even use timbers from your property for some or all of the structure. Let us show you how!
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.
