At Homestead Timber Frames our guiding principal is to express your ideas of home in a handcrafted timber frame filled with natural beauty and comfort. We challenge you to think beyond mere size – as often bigger is not better. We view our timber frames as Real Life homes for those who seek to own a quality built home in a well designed space.
Our timber framing expertise reaches beyond designing and building homes. You may desire other worthy structures such as a good barn, a pavilion or handsome addition that personalizes your current structure. We are a small professional company with whom you can talk to, share ideas with and visit while your project is in the shop. You wish to live in a home that combines your vision and lifestyle needs using native woods. Homestead Timber Frames strives to fulfill these goals and more.
Well designed timber frame homes are visually exciting, warm and inviting, adaptable to any need, and efficient to maintain. We offer full timber frames, hybrids, and rugged trusses for exterior spaces or timbered roof systems.
Our Timber Frame Home Philosophy
In a desire to live a more sustainable lifestyle, we strive to plan homes that incorporate the best in energy efficiency in all aspects of personal use, sensible living space, and responsible design.
A native white oak timber frame with the natural warmth only wood can provide gives you that attractive atmosphere you yearn for while incorporating high R-value enclosure systems for energy efficiency. This is what we view as a real life home – an inviting environment beautifully designed and built to reflect the personal lifestyle you enjoy.
We try to plan and build houses which will simplify the work of home life and add to its wholesome joy and comfort.
The first step in building responsibly is to site your home to take advantage of the views while paying attention to winter winds and solar orientation. The home should be designed with these fundamentals while providing a comfortable, convenient living environment. These ideas were encouraged by one of our favorite author/designers from the turn of the century, Gustav Stickley. His philosophy helped create the Arts and Crafts movement where the house and all its elements were designed to be natural and simple. It is our desire to incorporate that timeless design within our timber frame homes.
