Homestead Timber Frames was contacted in the fall of 2019 to build this beautiful Douglas fir heavy timber frame pavilion. The 42′ wide x 72′ long pavilion was hand cut in our shop and was successfully raised at the site in May of 2020. We were honored and happy to be a part of this beautiful Forrest Street Park Farmers Market project in Arlington, Tennessee.
Meet The Homestead Timber Frames Family…
Homestead Timber Frames builds massive heavy timber structures by hand. Huge homes and airplane hangars, craggy castles, large pavilions / markets / concert venues, and other amazing buildings. We build incredible things because we love the smell and feel of wood and creating things people marvel over. We are masters with the slick and chisel and pride ourselves on 1/32” square over distances of 100 feet on buildings. We are a close-knit family that takes care of one another. We value patience, empathy, and compassion over skills. In other words, good human first, skilled worker second. Want to learn more? Check out Our Family Page.

Thoughts About Farmers Markets…
"Farmers Markets whet my appetite for garden vegetables and childhood memories. As a child I would sneak into my mother’s garden with my sister and pilfer fresh peas from their pods. We would sit hunched in the garden, snapping the pods from the stem with one hand and unzipping them with the other. The peas would spill onto our tongues like balls down the drain of a pinball machine. Our next door neighbor had a strawberry garden with rows so long you had to turn your head to take it all in. At harvest time, they always shared some with us. Seeing that bowl of strawberries approach from across the road set my mouth to salivating at first sight. Farmers Markets transport you back to times when fresh food was the norm; whether hunched down on your knees in your mother’s garden, or eyeing that row of strawberries across the street."
