A NEW CABIN, BUILT AN OLD WAY
Everyone needs a place to recharge his or her “batteries” that demands of daily life drain. That place can be by the ocean, in the mountains, on a lake or in the high desert. Most prefer such a place to be quiet – a place to find inspiration and energy to cope with the challenges ahead.
Timber-frame construction is not a new way to build things. It’s a mentality, an “old way” to do things better. It teaches people how others, who lived before the Industrial Revolution, constructed buildings in their “old school” way. We, at Homestead Timber Frames, educate clients on those “old” ways, offering structures in various stages of completion. We can provide plans, timbers cut to length, complete kits and a ready-to-go cabin structure assembled on site.
So, decide where you want your “recharge” cabin to be. Then, call us for everything you need to build it. A new cabin, built an old way.
The 20-foot x 20-foot timber frame cabin was inspired by Graeme Jenvey and his Woodness Goodness channel on YouTube. Our craftsmen, with designer, Beni, converted Graeme’s stick-built cabin to timber-frame.
