Timber Frame Kits
The timber frame kits you see here are crafted with the same quality and attention to detail as the large, beautiful homes you see elsewhere on our website. They are all timber frame structures you will love building, and spending time in with your family and friends. They will last for decades. So, please, take a look at the timber frame kits and the descriptions and give us a call. We’ll deliver within a reasonable distance from our shop, and we’ll give you all the help and assembly advice we can over the phone or by email.

So you made a mistake and bought a 1953 Chevy 3100 series pickup truck and your wife doesn’t want it parked in the yard?
Reclaimed hand hewn beams or: putting old wood back to work this started with a question A builder who purchased reclaimed wood trusses for his client asked if we’d send some information on the original source of the hand hewn beams.
