In many areas of the country, Timber Frame style of home building is becoming the norm, rather than the exception, method of construction, sometimes even dictated by City Planners and building codes. Hot spots like Jackson Hole, Wy, Big Sky, MT, and the ski areas of Colorado have seen a dramatic rise in the Timber Frame style of construction, and for good reason. The use of heavy timbers in framing and truss work harkens back to the days when the use of hand hewn timbers was the method used first by the pioneers, then by the Railroad companies that built massive log and timber lodges as the tracks were laid on their journey into the west. At first glance, a Timber Frame structure takes you back to the days of the Old West, a look that is being recreated by architects all over the country. Today, the art of old style joinery is still being practiced right here in our facility by the finest crew in the Bitterroot Valley, and it is one of our most asked about home styles at this time. We can construct not only entire Timber Frame Home packages, but also custom Timber Trusses, Hand Hewn Beams and Posts, and custom Timbers in various lengths, widths, and finish profiles, which can even be incorporated into a traditionally framed home for a truly custom look. Each project is custom designed, so feel free to contact us for more information or send us your plans for a quote..
