Why build with a timber frame over traditional construction?

Timber frame construction offers several advantages over traditional framing, including greater structural stability, improved energy efficiency, and the ability to create open, spacious interiors with fewer load-bearing walls. Additionally, timber frames are often crafted from sustainably sourced wood, making them an environmentally friendly choice. The natural beauty of exposed timber frames can also add a unique aesthetic appeal to a building, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

What Types of Wood Are Offered?

Homestead Timber Frames typically employs local White oak for interior timber frames and Baldcypress for exterior timbers. Specifying and using timber local to us minimizes transportation costs, uses trees locally harvested from forests that naturally recover, and provides our clients with a beautiful timber frame using timbers of known provenance and quality.

If you wish to use your own timber, it is allowed after it passes a grading process to check for things that would cause structural failures and issues.

Custom Plans vs Templated Kit Plans

We pride ourselves on crafting custom-tailored designs that bring your unique vision to life. While each project is one-of-a-kind, we invite you to browse our extensive collection of plans and designs, which serve as a wellspring of inspiration and can even be replicated if you find the perfect match for your dream home or structure. Check out our complete gallery of past work for more inspiration.

Our Timber Framing Process

Our process begins with a Preliminary Design Consultation, where the design team collaborates with the client to create initial sketches, floor plans, and exterior elevations. Once the designs are approved, a production agreement is signed, and construction drawings are created while the specified timber is ordered. The most exciting day is the timber frame raising, where the crew assembles and raises the bents, connects timbers, and completes the structure, after which your general contractor takes over to finish the project according to the detailed plans provided.

delivery of your timber frame

Can you deliver to my build site in New Jersey?

Yes, your timber frame project will be conveniently delivered directly to your build site via flatbed truck.

How Much does timber framing cost?

Historically, timber frame packages can range from $65 - $150 or higher, depending on the amount of timber framing and complexity of the design. Larger timber frame projects like fully timber framed homes and barns tend to be on the lower end of that spectrum because larger areas can be covered with larger, but fewer pieces. This price range for a timber frame package usually includes other necessities such as tongue and groove roof decking and installation by our very own crew of seasoned professionals.
