Timber Frames & Trusses

Snowdrift farmhouse

You only get one chance to give a building soul. We do it with exposed heavy timbers and traditional wooden joinery, hand-crafted in Idaho.

Our timber frames create beautiful, open spaces that last for generations.

They also support high-performance building envelopes that minimize heating and cooling costs.

We fabricate and finish timber frames and trusses at our shop in Driggs, Idaho, and travel all over the Rockies to raise them.  Most of our projects are in Wyoming and Idaho but we have also raised frames in Utah, Montana and California.  We work directly with home-owners, architects, engineers and other talented builders.

What is timberframing?  Where is it used?

Timberframe construction is a centuries-old way of connecting heavy timbers with wooden joinery to create a braced frame that resists both gravity and lateral loads. It is an elegant expression of structure that demands careful planning and craftsmanship.  We are proud of the quality of our joinery and the durability of the structures we build.  The applications for timberframe construction are many and varied.  Our frames have been used to build fine homes, classrooms, stages, showrooms, gazebos, and greenhouses.
