Everyone has unique desires & requirements for the investment they call home. From the beginning design stages through to the completion of construction documents we are with you each step of the way.  Working with you to help develop the timber frame project you have envisioned.  Below is a basic outline of the design process & what you may expect through each phase.

The Design Process:

·  Your Thoughts & Ideas

·  Discussions with your ideas on the home you would like to build, sharing ideas & thoughts on the home’s function as well the lifestyle of the people who will live in

Concept Design:

·  Hand-drawn renderings to determine style, size & use of space

·  ¼”  scale plans produced in CAD format to get an exact square footage & to gain a clearer understanding of flow, textures & finishes of the complete project

3-D Timber Frame Designs:

·  Preliminary Phase – to reveal the effect timber framing will have on the final project

Commencement of the Construction Documents Process:

·  Continued consultation with you & the contractors involved with your project.  A meeting with all individuals involved with the construction of the project is highly recommended as insights into every aspect of the construction process may be understood by all

Timber Frame Design Drawings:

Final Plan Review with Owner & Contractor:

·  We believe this step helps speed construction time & saves you money by assuring that everyone involved has a full understanding of the project.
