    Rob & Melissa's home is located on a constrained build site with fantastic lake frontage. Focal points are captured thru dynamic views from multiple spaces. The warmth of the frame, the efficiency of the enclosure, the fine woodworking, and the reclaimed wood all combine for comfortable lakeside living.

  • Porches are expressive while serving a key role as transition space or even as outdoor rooms. These spaces often frame views while providing a bit of shelter. Our special, pre-designed modular screened porch systems can provide just the right amount of privacy for sleep outside on a hot summer's night and they keep unwelcome visitors out.

    Pavilions & Pergolas

     

    An extensive remodel of a timber frame home near Portland, Oregon included the addition of an outdoor living and dining area. The pavilion inspired space was crafted from industrial as-found timbers paired with artisan concrete and an arbor to connect to the home.

    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

    Timber Frame Interiors

     

    This 3600 square foot Washington home encompasses one floor living with a tower room for getting away and a garden level for guests.

  • 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’.

    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.

  • This modestly sized lake house offers a cozy and charming facade for those passing by on the roadside. Conversely, the home opens up and shares itself fully to the lakeside. Learn what makes this home green, by visiting our Residential Case Studies under Galleries.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

    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.
