Here’s What Our Client Said…
Homestead brought their skills of traditional timber framing with vision and rekindled artistry within the heart of my home. Going to the Homestead shop you start to understand the depth of such words as “edge-halved scarf” circa 1375, England. You begin to see the craftsmanship and feel the people behind the timber are truly artists.

Come On Up And Sit A Spell…
Have you ever driven by a home that really caught your eye? The one with the welcoming front porch? Perhaps it was the lines of a house or the placement of an unusual window. While driving through neighborhoods built in the last century, you’ll also notice the many shapes and sizes of front or side porches. These lovely outdoor covered spaces gave the dwellers a place to relax at the end of the day – converse with their neighbors or even just watch the children at play. Want to learn more?
