He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
Francis of Assisi

From the first pencil sketch to the final peg, every frame we craft reflects the unique vision our client brings to the build.  We  collaborate with customers and other contractors from brainstorming to raising day.  Each timber is sourced locally and handcrafted in our family-owned Vermont shop.  We're not a factory trying to sell you something off the shelf: we build YOUR frame.

A centuries-old tradition using renewable resources, timber framing creates remarkable spaces for life to thrive.  It's also carbon negative - sequestering CO2 captured in the living tree for the life of the building.  The closer it is harvested, and less it is transported, the smaller its footprint is.  It's a powerful way to create  space with a lighter touch on the environment.

Born in a Barn

Part of Your Team

We work with home owners,  contractors and designers as well as do-it-yourselfers who want to "take it from here" when the raising is done. We'll talk you through all the design stages and options and explain it as we go.  Shop and site visits are welcome, and 'hands-on' participation can be arranged as your masterpiece becomes reality.

Small & Mid Size Projects

Camps and cabins, garages, barns and sheds, pavillions, porches and entries, outbuildings and house frames.  Fireplace surrounds, interior design accents.  Additions, whether your existing structure is timber-framed or not. We don't just do million dollar second homes, we do timberframes for the rest of us.

One of a Kind &
One at a Time
